I have sentence: "He puts my ear to the ground."

I really don't know how can i translate it. Can you help me, please?
If this is the figurative sense:
he keeps me up-to-date, informed

"He puts my ear to the ground."

It's an odd usage. Normally, one puts one's own ear to the ground. The figurative use derives from the idea of a person actually kneeling down and putting his ear to (against) the ground. It's rather comical to consider a person grabbing another person's earand pulling it to the ground. Emotion: big smile
