Is male shama incubate his eggs?

This is the question that seems no one can give a definitive answer. With the newly camera install on the second clutch, I were able to observe the male jump into the nest and incubate the eggs. Even with only few minutes long, the male shama, at least in this case, does incubate his eggs when his mate when out to eat and/or take a bath.
The clip below is only two and a half minutes long due to I cut most part of non-active clip to save time watching, but if you notice the time, the male incubates for little over 6 min long.
