Sounds and Vocal Behavior

Vocalizations

The song of Orange-eyed Flycatcher is described as "a series of up to 5-7 well-enunciated zhreee notes, fairly similar to [song of Yellow-breasted Flycatcher Tolmomyias flaviventris viridiceps] but notes somewhat longer and wheezier" (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001b) and as "a rising series of short, rising-falling, raspy whistled notes: zreep zreeeep ZREEEP, final note often becoming clearer and more squeaky" (Lane, in Schulenberg et al. 2007).

The distinctive call of Orange-eyed Flycatcher is described as a "two-parted and buzzy wheeeeezzz-birrt or psi-trrrrrrrr, given at rather long intervals and sometimes with a few other buzzy notes appended" (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001b) or as "a rising-falling raspy whistle followed by a low chatter: ZREEE'chirr'rr" (Lane, in Schulenberg et al. 2007).
