Noticing in the garden after feeding, the black/ brown birds are present but there is one blackbird with the normal yellow beak then another black bird with a total black beak, i have never seen a blackbird with a black beak, is this a different type of breed?

In reply to robin red:
Seymour is right. Scandinavian blackbirds having black beaks is a myth. All 1st year male blackbirds have black beaks."
