I always wondered myself if it was an eagle, though I thought it strange to be so. However, I figured it must be so, as eagles are about great power and to me the hermit also suggests that. 'quiet power' if you will.

though the raven is a symbol of birth and death, and mysticism and magic. I think I associate this bird more with the magician, but I guess I can also see it as being associated w/the hermit, considering the hermit is also about birth and death.
