I have gone back and forth on this one, but why is it again that this is not a buteo?

I was there with Kamba and got photos of the same bird. Wonder if they will help Niels?

I could not get the pale area at the base of the primaries to fit the flight images I saw elsewhere. Now I saw one other photo showing something similar (though less contrasty).
