I'm not too sure, but the Romanian national anthem is called "Deșteaptă-te, române!" which translates into Awaken thee, Romanian! So in some sense, I guess it could
deștept means smart; a se deștepta is a way to say wake up; deșteaptă-te means (you) wake up! - as in a command
In English, this need not refer to a specific bird, but can be a general statement characterizing the species. Same as "Eagles are smart birds." Is this true of Romanian as well, or would it necessarily refer to one particular eagle?
The correct pronunciation for the word "vulturul" is https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EpPl7NXcI953e3AL8U_XToOniGe9uEQv/view?usp=drivesdk
Is good to know that vulture and eagle is not exactly the same thing.
Vulture (en) = vultur (ro) Eagle (en) = acvilă (ro) So the Romanian sentence is actually wrong here.
