Multicolored Tanager Chlorochrysa nitidissima


Sounds and Vocal Behavior


The calls of the Multicolored Tanager have been described as a lisping wheezy ceet, czee, or swee (Hilty and Brown 1986, Alvarez-Rebolledo et al. 2007). A quick series of swee-see-see-see notes have been described as a possible song (Hilty 2011). Pairs emit constant short contact calls, during which males can occasionally sing short phrases (Gómez-Hoyos et al. 2018). Additional audio recordings of the Multicolored Tanager’s vocalizations can be found at xeno-canto and Macaulay Library.
