Strange long beaked sparrow

Have a strange sparrow visiting my garden currently, is it deformed or a species I have not seen before

    He has clearly found a way to eat. Maybe it scoops up seed with the lower mandible? Preening must be a challenge though.

    Interesting. Why not post it on one of the forums? More folks are likely to watch it there. I think it will cause a lot of interest.
