"Vulturul e o pasăre deșteaptă."
Translation:The eagle is a smart bird.
deștept means smart; a se deștepta is a way to say wake up; deșteaptă-te means (you) wake up! - as in a command
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
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?
