Mechanical Sounds

Australasian Gannets do a terrific clacking of beaks when
returning to their mate on the nest,
followed by a manouver that resembles Morris dancing,
[ Morus Serrator   dancing  : )    ]
in which they bang beaks together. 

White faced Heron makes a loud clack-clack
as an alarm or defensive call. It sounds like a bill clack
but not sure if it really is.

Rifle Birds in courtship, beating wings together  ?

Rosella's flying into windows on overcast days?
