A male bellbird

The bellbird is a bird native to Central and South America. It opens its mouth wide and makes a call that sounds like a large, clanging bell to attract its mate. The bellbird's name has been received by that sound. The bellbird has the loudest voice of any bird, so loud it can be heard a mile or more away.[1]
