Sounds and Vocal Behavior
Black-crowned Antpitta usually is quiet and unobtrusive, but gives ten to sixteen descending, hoarse, guttural, coughing, squirrel-like notes when excited or alarmed (Hilty and Brown 1986, Stiles and Skutch 1989).
For a representative audio recording with sonogram, see audio
The song of Black-crowned Antpitta is a long series of pulsating, "pinking" notes that gradually ascend in pitch while their tempo decreases (Stiles and Skutch 1989). The ten or so final notes are of the same pitch and slightly longer in duration.
