Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
You get a birdís Ėeye view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower.
a birdís-eye view = an oblique view of an object from above;
The speaker gave a birdís eye view of the situation.
a birdís eye view = survey
Thank you for your efforts.
I've only ever heard the literal use of this phrase, not the metaphorical one quoted above.The speaker gave a bird’s eye view of the situation.
I would say 'The speaker gave an overview of the situation'.
