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).

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