Carrion Crow, ? brood patch

Observation - Carrion Crow, ? brood patch - UK and Ireland. Description: This Carrion Crow is a regular visitor to our pond tadpoling (we assume). It has gradually got more white feathers underneath and now become somewhat bald. Is this a brood patch? I've not noticed one as prominent as this before.
