Vocalizations

There is little information on vocalizations of Rufous-webbed Brilliant. The call is described as "a sweet, descending tew" (Lane, in Schulenberg et al. 2010). The song is a series of chew notes interspersed with a short, rapid, descending trill.

For a representative audio recording with sonogram, see audio

There are very few audio recordings of vocalizations of Rufous-webbed Brilliant; examples can be heard at Macaulay Library and at xeno-canto.
