Vocalizations

The song of Ocellated Thrasher is described as a varied, rich warbling in which phrases are repeated two or three times; this song is not always distinguishable from the song of Curve-billed Thrasher (Toxostoma curvirostre) (Davis 1972, Edwards 1972, Howell and Webb 1995).

For a representative audio recording with sonogram, see audio

Calls of Ocellated Thrasher include "a hard, slightly smacking to gruff chehk or tchehk" (Howell and Webb 1995).

Additional audio recordings of vocalizations of Ocellated Thrasher can be heard at Macaulay Library, at xeno-canto, and at Internet Bird Collection.
