ID Help Requested - Potential Lesser Cuckooshrike - Asia, Australia & Pacific Islands area (1 Viewer)

I am asking for ID confirmation help for this upload to the Opus Gallery
Lesser Cuckooshrike

Date of upload 8 September 2006 by member ljs
The way it was described, then it leans toward it being a male, which if it is, is something we need in/for the species Opus article.
That is beyond my ability to ID so I'm asking those with more knowledge to weigh in if you would. I've reached out to ljs, but the member hasn't been seen here on BF since way back then, so??

Here is an as-uploaded version of the image and one I tried to lighten without much success, but I offer it in either case.

I'd like to thank all who helped with this. Another image has been offered and will be added to Opus as soon as my time allows.
