We describe the first recordings of a male vocalization of the Turquoise Cotinga (Cotinga ridgwayi) along with reviewing the sound production in the genus Cotinga. Vocalizations were heard in the Coto Brus region of southwestern Costa Rica from late 2003 until early 2005. The vocalization described is different from previous calls known for the species and genus. The vocalization is a pure tone, produced at a high frequency. These vocalizations were observed in a variety of contexts, although more often during alarm or advertisement situations.
