Many Hindu Gods and Goddesses are often associated with animals : Shiva with the bull, Durga with the lion, Vishnu with the eagle etc.

    1. Garuḍa is closer to a vulture than an eagle. 2. The First Human I maybe? (If you don't think the Bible is completely made up, he, when known as Vaivasvata, has a raven). – Aupakarana Abhibhaa Oct 19 '20 at 11:00

    If raven and vulture are the same then Shani Dev is the answer. hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/17557/4732 – Rickross Oct 19 '20 at 12:39

    @Rickross If raven and vulture are considered the same, Hari would count. (And obviously Garuḍa and Aruṇa) – Aupakarana Abhibhaa Oct 19 '20 at 12:51
  • Crows and Ravens. – Doubtful Monk Oct 19 '20 at 13:43

    @DoubtfulMonk Hara Kirāta is a hunter, so I guess it is implied he associates with scavenging animals to find kills and weak animals. Not an explicit relation though. – Aupakarana Abhibhaa Oct 19 '20 at 17:23
