Which Ibis is this?

As I was photographing this Ibis, there was a lot of debate as to which kind (Glossy, White-faced or some hybrid). Several folks had their various field guides with images of various Ibis throughout the year.

I am fairly certain its a White-faced Ibis even if some of the face coloring isn't an exact match of other images I have seen. Any ornithologists (professional and aspiring welcome) want to comment?

I think I'd go with white face, as well. Lovely shots, I must say. :)
