Question large pelican like birds

Just wondering what bird looks like a pelican without the pouch? A white bird about waste high with a decent sized bill? Legs long but not as long as a storks? It is a waterbird also i just saw a old black and white video of a group of these birds mobbing a large retic python!

Hi Again,
Belatedly looked up retic python. Asian species. I don't know why I was thinking you were talking South or Central America. Anyway maybe some sort of big billed Asian Stork. Something like the Aussie Jabiru only all white? Ibis? I don't have any books on board for Asian birds. Sorry.
Sue
