Sounds and Vocal Behavior


There are no published audio recordings of vocalizations of Markham's Storm-Petrel. Birds call from within the burrows in which they nest, and probably also in flight (Jahncke 1994). A sonogram in Brooke (2004) shows a series of wheezes, purrs, and chatters.

Nonvocal Sounds

None known.
