Song: During display males produce a nasal grating "kaaKAA...kaKAA" higher pitched than calls of Ring-necked Duck, very different from Common Goldeneye. Female's guttural "guck" almost identical to female Common Goldeneye's call but slightly higher pitched. Wing whistle is quieter and less whining than Common's.
