This is again one of those cases where I can understand the intention of trying to teach "ketkä", but the correct English here is "who is" and there is just no way around it. I think ketkä-phrases in the tasks should only be with answers such as "we are" to make it less ambiguous.

I second anonyneko. You never say "who are" in this case. You could also try using "Who(pl.) is looking for the bird?" to show that you are looking for the plural "ketkä" or yes just put in the exercise as well the answer "we are".

"Who is looking for the bird? We are."

Or

"Who(pl.) is looking for the bird?"
