California thrasher with a very long bill?

Good afternoon,
This morning, in Kate
Sessions park, I had a California Thrasher with (at least in my
experience) an exceptionally long and decurved bill.  Since I can't find
much information confirming such bill shape variance in this species, I thought I'd
see if anyone here believed this identification to be incorrect.
