[ee is pronounced as A]
Dutch De eekhoorn eet een eikel
English The squirrel eats an acorn

A starling is a spreeuw in Dutch which sounds more like sparrow to me, but that's a (huis)mus.

Sad thing is I only realized the latter when the BBC picked up on the Dutch TV scandal about a sparrow being killed for knocking over 23,000 dominos in a human world record attempt for domino building and falling.
