Lifer - Black headed cuckoo shrike

This bird may be categorised as LC (Least concern) but for me it was a lifer.

Male has dark slaty-gray head, neck, and upper breast; rest of the body is pale gray, with white on the belly. Wings darker than mantle. Female lacks the black hood, and has a whitish supercilium, brownish-gray upperparts with lightly barred back and rump, and buff-white underparts with wide brown bars.
