The song of Andean Tinamou is described as a "sharp cheeleep" (Fjeldså and Krabbe 1990) as "an explosive, rising thin whistle: tuEEE! or tu-tuEEE!" (Lane, in Schulenberg et al. 2010).
For a representative audio recording with sonogram, see audio
When flushed, may give a "long accelerating and descending series of melodic ... calls pyouc-puyc-oyuc ...yucyucyu ..." (Fjeldså and Krabbe 1990).
Additional audio recordings of vocalizations of Andean Tinamou can be heard at xeno-canto.
None reported. The wings probably produce a whistling sound when the bird is flushed, as with other species of tinamou.
