Captive bird, territorial paired. Not sure how sound is being made. Visual display with sound: yes, 4-5 displays with vocalizations. This is stimulated by someone approaching the cage, which has to be done to get the bird to repeat itself. To give this call, the bird bends forward and inflates its neck. The booming sound is produced as the air is released and the bill is clapped.
