  1. If I were to born a bird, I’d choose to be an eagle. If they had run out of eagles, vulture would be fine!

        1. Actually, this is quite a tricky one, Paolo. I think there are two possibilities here but I need to know your original idea. Were you trying to start with:
          1) Se dovesse nascere un uccello…..
          2) Se fossi nato un uccello…..

          1. La mia intenzione era: “Se dovessi nascere uccello, sceglierei un’acquila. Se le aquile fossero finite, un avvoltoio andrebbe bene!”

            1. So, in that case it’s an “impossible” second conditional:
              If I were (to be) born a bird, I’d choose to be an eagle. If there were no more eagles, a vulture would be equally good / fine.
              In the beginning it might be more typical to say:
              If I were to come back as a bird…

              1. I’m totally for the more typical way!
                If I were to come back as a bird, I’d choose to be an eagle. If there were no more eagles, a vulture would be equally fine.
                Thanks Tony!
