A rare and little-known raptor of lowland rainforest. Fairly small with dark gray upperparts and white underparts, with deep orange legs and facial skin. Catches lizards and insects from the ground. Similar to New Britain Goshawk of higher elevations, but smaller with more demarcation between the white throat and black head. Vaguely similar to New Britain Sparrowhawk and but has orange rather than yellow legs and lacks the rufous collar. Vocalizations not well known.
