    Here's the close-up shot showing more details of the deformed bill. Not sure if it's been damaged or whether it was born like this. It seems to be surviving, so hope the extreme cold that is heading our way, doesn't kill off the birds. There will be snow Sunday night and freezing temperatures.

    This is the Hermit Thrush with the damaged bill. It must be able to get enough to eat, as I've been seeing it for a few weeks. I'll post a close-up next

    We've been seeing this Hermit Thrush a lot this winter. We've also had one with a deformed bill, which seems to be feeding OK. I'll upload 2 photos of it next.
