Pale-mandibled Araçari (Pteroglossus torquatus ssp. erythropygius)

A severely damaged lower mandible with a part missing – perhaps from a fight with a predator. Fortunately the tip of the beak is intact and thus it can grab any food and continue eating like normal, which is to swing the beak fast upwards so the fruit will fly up in the air so it can hit the base of the beak and down the hatch.
