I put "Birds are behind the window", which is unnatural for sure, but I got it wrong in favor of "Иirds are behind the window" which is VERY unnatural.

The meaning of "behind the window" is different from "outside the window", but it's still grammatically and semantically correct, so it should be accepted.

And yeah, "иirds" got born due to "и" and "b" being located on the same key on the keyboard ;)

Revenge of the Иirds!

It should, but... Only answers with the formulation "There are birds..." are accepted.

In the slower version of the spoken phrase the trailing м in окном cannot be heard.
