Default Jackdaw

This Jackdaw with a short/damaged lower bill has been visiting the garden. It doesn't seem phased by it at all.

It does look more like a birth defect than damage as the upper looks a little bigger than normal. As you say they are resourceful birds and it doesn't look to be struggling.

The Jackdaw looks healthy enough Ian!
