Technically speaking, yes. But it's also a generic form of address for an older male relative.

"Today is the birthday of my uncle" should also be accepted.

I think Duo, in any course, prefers standard translations. Though "today is the birthday of my uncle" is a literal translation of the sentence, it is awkward and unnatural.
