The Black-faced Hawk (Leucopternis melanops) is very similar in overall coloration, but it is much smaller and has a black tail with a single bold white bar in the middle. The Ornate Hawk-Eagle (Spizaetus ornatus), presumably a very close relative of S. melanoleucus, looks quite similar when young. However, the wings, back and tail are much lighter in young S. ornatus, and they do not have the black eye-ring. More

The Black-faced Hawk (Leucopternis melanops) is a species of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family.

It is closely related to the White-browed Hawk and individuals showing a level of intermediacy between the two species are known, suggesting that they rarely hybridize. More
