I've seen similar behaviour to that being discussed with White-winged Choughs. I assumed it was some type of mating display when i saw it.

Here's a photos i got of the display that might help people visualise whast being discussed here:

That's very similar, but not quite what we saw. Imagine the two birds standing close, breast-to-breast, and their head tilted up - beaks to the sky and slightly open. The posture was held just like that with very little movement for most of the time we observed them.
