Eyes in the Skies (Su): The hermit can commune with birds as the spell once per day even if she isn’t a tengu. If she is at least 5th level, once per day she can see from the perspective of one ordinary bird she can see within 400 feet + 40 feet per hermit level for as long as she concentrates, up to 1 minute per level. If she is at least 8th level, she automatically senses when an animal population is dangerously depleted or when groups of animals are sickened or abused, as if she had asked about the population’s condition with commune with nature.
