Question: My mac makes a weird honking noise

Sometimes it honks once and sometimes it honks 5 times in a row...it's really strange. Can't pin-point the reason to this. I notice when I have outlook open it tends to make that noise, I thought it might be the RAM acting up. Not sure what to do at this point. I've deleted and archived a lot of files, is there anyway to diagnose this?

Honks or Beeps. If the former you may have a goose stuck inside. 😁😁 If the latter: Mac computers- About startup tones - Beeps, Intel-based Mac Power On Self Test RAM error beeps, and Power On Self-Test Beep Definition - Part 2. Otherwise, it would not likely be caused by macOS but something you have installed and running or Notifications.
