    It is indeed a Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike. It has adult plumage but does not look like an old bird. Given your description of its movements it has clearly sustained a substantial injury of some form. It may be something like a broken wing by the sounds of it. Irrespective I would say it definitely needs a professional assessment. The people to call in Old for injured wildlife are the RSPCA Qld on 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625). At this stage I would suggest just providing a dish of water, so that it can drink if it needs it, until it is picked up.

    Good on ya for rescuing it and I hope it makes it!
