The Plumbeous Hawk is one of the most poorly known members of the Neotropical genus Leucopternis. This species is distributed along the west slope of the northern Andes in the Choco biogeographic region in northwestern Colombia and western Ecuador, where it is resident in humid lowland forest and foothills up to 800 m. The Plumbeous Hawk feeds on small vertebrates, which it hunts in the forest interior with a perch-and-wait strategy. Though it is the only completely slate-colored Leucopternis in its range, it might be confused with the Crane Hawk (Geranospiza caerulescens), but note the Crane Hawk’s larger size, longer tarsi, conspicuously banded tail and more slender structure.
