The Black-faced Hawk (Leucopternis melanops) is a species of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family. This low-density species has traditionally been believed to be restricted to Amazon Basin north of the Amazon River, but there are several records south of this river, in, for example, the Brazilian states of Pará and Acre, and south-eastern Peru. It is closely related to the White-browed Hawk and individuals showing a level of intermediacy between the two species are known, suggesting that they rarely hybridize.
