Marabou Stork (Leptoptilos crumenifer)

I had captured this 'Marabou Stork' at Kruger National Park, early in the morning, during our staying at Northern Kruger area. Bird was bit far and I took this picture from our self-driven vehicle.Very small eyes and white legs.

It's breeds mainly Africa, but South of Sahara in both aried and wet habitats. It's a large bird height of 152cm. It has a huge bill and a pink gular sack.

Hi Srikumar,

The birb is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Marabou Stork. The light is bringing out the colors. My main computer is not working, I am using my tablet to access internet, have a nice day.
