Members of the "Blue-crowned Motmot" complex can be divided into two vocal groups, those that give songs consist of a single note, and those whose song contains two notes. The Whooping Motmot is a member of the single note group. The song is transcribed as "whoooop" (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001b), and as "whoop" (Lane, in Schulenberg et al. 2007).
