I was wondering is someone could help me to identify some birds.  This
is for the links to world bird sounds  that I am providing at my web
site.  On the Australian Broadcasting Corporation web site they have a
number of sound files and there are a few that I am having trouble
identifying in my field guide (Simpson & Day) or the Clements world
list.  I thought someone might be able to give me some alternate or
scientific names for the following.

What is a Grey-mantled Albatross?
What is a Rufous-tailed Bronze-Cuckoo?
What is a Burdekin Duck?
What is a Grass Whistling Duck?
What is a Water Whistling Duck?
What is a Mountain Duck?
What is a Plumed Egret? (Coul it be Little Eget?)
What is a Brown Warbler?

They have provided the same link for both White Ibis and Straw-necked
Ibis.  Does anyone know which of the two it actually is?      

Any help is much appreciated.  This is not a commercial venture.

Best Regards,
