ID tips - the wide white V on the back and, not visible for your bird, the dark patagials. The experts may have additional suggestions.

I knew of the patagials & IDing from below.  This bird seen from above, though, I might have not been able to ID on this dorsal view alone.

Sometimes it’s easier to figure out what it is by what it isn’t, if that makes any sense.
