Jackdaw question

Snapped this Jackdaw in my garden - it has a strange head, is this some kind of decease or just a bad hair day.

Bad hair day. Looks to me like it's been in a fight or attacked by a predator, and had some feathers pulled out.

Yes, looks like some of the feathers are dead, at least missing.
