This morning I went back to see the Sage Thrasher again. My wife had not
seen it and I wanted to see if I could get a better picture with a longer
telephoto lens. Found it quickly and got some nice shots.

When I was examining the photos on the computer I noticed the something
sticking up on top of the bill. At first I thought it might be dirt but on
closer inspection it appear the upper mandible is cracked and part of it is
sticking up.

Here's the close-up photo of the SATH bill


Here are a couple regular sized pictures of the SATH
