The "Clip Info" from Real Player suggests its recorded at a breeding
colony containing both species.  It sounds like begging calls of young.

Adult White Ibis have a "honk" call (or calls) which you hear not
uncommonly in inner Sydney.  It/they seem to be alarm and greeting calls.
This call isn't on the clip.
