Hi Monica
May I just point to you that this is a Yellow-billed stork - Mycteria ibis. You can view some other photos of it here or here. The Marabou stork - Leptoptilos crumeniferos is quite an ugly bugger and can be viewed here or here. Hope that could help you somewhat.
As for your photo: Maybe the bird is a little far away, but it shows it in typical habitat and that is good. The composition is nice while it shows the bird doing what it is doing most of the day, n.l. wading for food. The colours are fine and the exposure is well balanced.
Good work and TFS.
