Mountain View

I have see an unusual bird in and around my daughter's school. The bird has Orange feet and makes a strange noise.

A poor drawing is attached so I will try to describe the bird.
The bill is longish (dagger like) and I've only seen the bird in flight (not at all a graceful flyer) but from a profile the bird has a steep rise behind it's head (like a hump on his shoulders).

Thank you
