Hybrid Swan Bill Disfiguration

Betsy Mooney
 

Nothing unusual for Lake Los Carneros. I'm sharing this checklist because I took some closeup photos of the hybrid swan and would like to know if anyone had previously noted the hole in this bird's bill. I've seen this bird many times and noted the discoloration, but I hadn't noted the bill as physically disfigured.
