At first I thought that I was looking at a male of the birds that were identified as hooded orioles earlier, but after looking at it on a larger screen, it doesn't look like that.

I agree that date/location is going to be greatly useful here, but if this is in the US my initial impression is Western- although it is a bit dark and contrasty the bill is very fine, probably a bit too much so for most other species.

Cassin's Kingbird -- the head and chest are too dark and the white malar area is too limited in expanse and sharply curtailed at the back of the eye. The distinction is usually straightforward.

Western

Cassin's
