Turdus curvirostra

A frosty morning at Stanford today targeting thrushes resulted in 46 new birds ringed:

Redwing 26 (plus 2 retraps)
Fieldfare 13
Blackbird 6 (plus 4 retraps)
and a Robin.

One of the retrap Blackbirds was this individual that, with its deformed bill, we never thought we would see again. It was originally ringed on 4th September whilst it was in post juvenile moult.
