Sounds like a secret spy-phrase. A code message of a kind.
In what contexts does tief mean "low"? Would "nieder" also be correct here?
Maybe niedrig would work?
What's the difference between Eule and Kauz? I've heard the latter used for 'owl' too.
I'm not an ornithologist, but according to the dictionaries:
die Eule - owl
der Kauz - screech owl
der Uhu - eagle owl
Sehr interessant! Vielen dank :)
And "Uhu" - that's an awesome name XD
Sounds like the speaker is saying "flugen".
Sounds fine to me. Compare with the recordings on Forvo.com.
"Deep" shouldn't be a suggested translation if it doesn't work
I have a problem with speakers that "swallow " word endings. Can't learn what we can't hear.
It is a Duoism of an idiom. The swallows are flying low today means that it will rain soon. Die Schwalben fliegen heute tief. Kind of chicken that the owl would substitute without explanation. Idiom or folk wisdom.
