Error in accepted answer

I just got the question to write "the bird" in French. Normally with these types of questions, you get a couple of buttons to choose the article and then an input where you type the word. However, in this question, the buttons for the article are missing. When I try to give the answer "l'oiseau", my answer is not accepted. Only when I fill in "un oiseau" the answer is accepted.

I've made a screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/RtEhc3X.png

If I click the Report button, I only get one choice: "The pictures do not match the given word."

Well, " l'oiseau " should be counted as correct. " Un oiseau " is " a bird " not "the bird" as you probably know. Weird.
