Even eagles can swim, if they need to.

I had my answer rejected for writing "Birds can fly but they cannot swim"! From Oxford dictionary: "Both cannot and can not are acceptable spellings, but the first is much more usual." It seems like there are a lot of these types of errors in the Hindi Duolingo, but not in other languages like Spanish and French -- would be great to get them corrected!

This answer "Birds can fly but can not swim" is quite unnatural. How about "Birds can fly but not swim"?

I think the translation is fine, except for "can not" (which should be "cannot").

I think it's fine too, though someone might want to have a word with the ducks (swans, geese, gannets, puffins etc).

Sadly, they are not as versatile as the cats, who can both sit and fly.

“Birds can fly but they can’t swim,” was not accepted.

I had the same, and it is annoying that it is not accepted - as if the real mistakes I make wouldn´t be enough ...
