The tiny hawk and its sister species, the upland-dwelling semicollared hawk ("A." collaris), form a superspecies.
The tiny hawk (Accipiter superciliosus) is a small diurnal bird of prey found in or near forests, primarily humid, throughout much of the Neotropics.
It is primarily a bird-eater, and is known to prey on hummingbirds.
It hunts hummingbirds and small passerines, typically darting out from a place of concealment to snatch them as they pass by, but also ambushing them when the smaller birds are perched.
There is some evidence that it learns the regular perches of some hummingbirds and hunts for them there.
There are two subspecies of tiny hawk, separated by the northern Andes.
The two differ most significantly in relative tail length; differences in size and color are small, and can be hard to distinguish.
