A large, long-tailed raptor of lowland and montane forest and clearings. Commonly seen in flight soaring in circles over the canopy with wing and tail feathers spread, showing strong barring. The only similar looking raptor that regularly soars is Pacific Baza, but Long-tailed Honey-Buzzard has a streaked chest and lacks the buffy underwing and belly. When perched, similar to Doria’s Hawk, but has yellow eyes and white legs. Usually silent.
