Easily heard and seen within its range, this hawk occurs in riparian areas with tall trees. It sits on exposed branches below the canopy for long periods and also soars over the forest in sweeping circles. The Gray Hawk eats lizards, snakes, small mammals, birds, large insects and even an occasional fish. The platform nest is made of sticks and leaves and hidden high in branches of a tall tree.

The four-digit banding code is GRHA.
