Agree it looks like a Swallow... and within that likely group, a White-winged seems a fair fit. Agreed the blue is certainly photo artifact. The black seems to be also but hard to be as confident.

If it is in the Beagle Channel odds are extremely high it is Chilean Skua. The photo doesn't show anything that would make me feel otherwise - even just on the photo I would lean Chilean over Brown.

Unless there is another species that nests within the Scrub-Jays that does not currently bear the name Scrub-Jay, they are arguably a taxonomically complete unit.
