Song

I know what you mean about the face, but if you look at the spots, they are arrow-head shaped, not rounded as in mistle. Also, they are on a rather yellow background colour near the shoulder, which is typical of Song. Finally, although the face is superficially similar, it lacks the white cheek patch of Mistle and the beak is not as large.
