How Well Do You Know--Blue Jay

So, how well do you know your common birds? There are three things "wrong" with this Blue Jay. What are they?

I'm only noticing one thing, and that's the wrong coloration around the eyes. The white extends above the eyes, and there is typically a black half ring that delineates the white and blue above the eye.

Everything else looks right to me.

There should be more white directly above the eye. Also, the dark "necklace" isn't very prominent. Theres also something odd about the wing, but I can't put my finger on it. Those are my best guesses!

not sure if it is just being short because of the snow, but it looks small/short. IIRC bluejays are taller and slimmer, but that may be because I'm used to seeing them in the summer

OK, so the white over the eye is missing. Black half ring in front of eye is missing. Still something else is off...

black feathers directly above bill should be white (encircled in black). Nice feature!!
