If you say "a bird caws," would that translate as "un pajaro grazna?"

By the way, the pronunciation given by our dictionary is a bit "off" for this verb. For people who use the "seseo" (as does our synthesizer) the "s" sound should be voiced (sounds like the English "z") before voiced consonants (such as "n").

Oddly enough, they get right the pronunciation of "durazno" which should present the same problem.

Although I am not sure who reads the story, you can hear this verb used several times in various chapters of Luis Sepúlveda's tale Historia de una gaviota y del gato que le enseña a volar

If you would like I will clip out some examples and can post them somewhere for you to hear.

You have it right. You can look it up in the dictionary here.
