A large, inconspicuous raptor of lowlands and foothill forest interior. Brown back and long tail with strong barring, pale underparts with strong sparse streaking, pale eye-brow and a thick dark eye-stripe. Ambushes birds from a perched position. Has been known to take bird-of-paradise at lek sites. Similar to Long-tailed Honey-Buzzard, but Doria’s Hawk doesn’t soar, is slightly larger with a dark eye and yellow rather than white legs. Call, a short, slow series of strong, shreaked calls.
