  1. I thought a rook with a deformed beak would be something unusual, but it appears not so. Having checked up I find there are many. A few minutes ago, on looking at a rook in a nearby tree, I was surprised to see this bird had a bill very like a crossbill , but more exaggerated , and very long . I did wonder how such a bird could manage to feed itself. The bird in question looked to be in the best of health.
