The Gray-bellied Hawk (Accipiter poliogaster) is one of the least studied birds of prey in the neotropics. Its geographical range in South America is from northern Colombia, east to southern Venezuela and the Guianas, south to northeastern Ecuador, eastern Peru, Amazonian and southeastern Brazil, northern Bolivia, southeastern Paraguay and northeastern Argentina (Jenkinson and Tuttle 1976, Ridgely and Greenfield 2001, Thiollay 2007, Global Raptor Information Network 2012). Despite a lack of information regarding its movements, the Gray-bellied Hawk is thought to be a permanent resident in Ecuador due to year-round sightings of the species (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001, Global Raptor Information Network 2012).
