The White-browed Hawk ("Leucopternis kuhli") is a species of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family. It is found in northern South America's southern Amazon Basin in eastern Peru, Bolivia, and northern Brazil.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or 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 birds 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 headwaters of 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 has confluence with the headwater rivers of Brazil's Amazonas state's Madeira River.

The White-browed Hawk's range extends from Peru-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.
