Its natural habitat is tropical moist lowland forests.

Range in southern Amazon Basin

Amazonian Peru to Pará

The range of the White-browed Hawk is limited by the Amazon River on the north. The bird's largest ranges are two areas: to the southwest in Amazonian eastern Peru, and to the south-central Amazon Basin to a combined headwater region of the Guapore River and the Tapajós River. In Bolivia, on the Brazil-Bolivia border river the Guapore, the range bifurcates and is found only at the headwaters of the Guapore, and in the northern Bolivia-Peru region where the Guapore joins the headwater rivers of Brazil's Amazonas state's Madeira River.

The White-browed Hawk's range extends from Peru and Bolivia in the southwest to Brazil's northeastern Pará state—the Atlantic coastal regions, and its border with Maranhão state, a distance of about 3000 km.
