The Shoebill Stork

I am enthralled by these birds. They are our obvious link to dinosaurs. Take a look at this:

The shoebill is primarily a silent bird, but one of the few noises it makes is a machine gun-like bill-clattering, generally used by members of a nesting pair to communicate with each other and their nestlings.  Shoebills may also utter croaking sounds, cow-like moos, whines, and nestlings may beg for food with hiccups.
