There are always changes in colour when a bird matures or moults. Most shades will brighten after the first moult. The 3 yellow face mutations show the most obvious changes because the yellow spreads as well as brightens after each moult.

The stripe across the belly is unusual

Violet is another shade that can look quite different each year on the same bird
