The shape looks better for Whistling Kite, and the pale wing panels fit that species well

I actually think the Whistling Kite would fit better for this bird actually.

Whistling Kite.

Little Eagle has a shorter, squarer, banded tail

Definitely a Whistling Kite. The tail is plain, not barred, and the pale band in the wings reaches the front of the wing, rather than being in the middle of the wing.
