Vocalizations

The song of Berlepsch's Tinamou is described as "a short and high-pitched (unusually so for a tinamou) piercing whistle, teeeee" (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001b).

For a representative audio recording with sonogram, see audio

There are few available audio recordings of vocalizations of Berlepsch's Tinamou; audio recordings can be heard at Macaulay Library, at xeno-canto, and at Internet Bird Collection.

Nonvocal Sounds

None reported, but probably it makes a loud whirring sound with its wings when flushed, as in the case of other tinamous.
