"The bird is flapping its wings."

Why would we use -moH here? Can laq not take an object on its own?

Correct. The wings flap. The bird makes them flap.

This confused me as well when I got this sentence for the first time. I feel it's a bit out of order because a later lesson will explain how -moH works which should make it clearer.
