No, they aren't - but this one was chosen as a 'winner' anyway:

Well, whaddyaknow ... as a result of the above findings the 'winning' faked photo - and the much older faked photo posted by the same person back in 2018 - have now been withdrawn from both challenges.

Yep. Its so disappointing that people resort to these practices against the rules.

I am a regular entrant and voter of the Bird challenges.

I voted for this entry as the 2nd best photo in the challenge.

Its hard enough to vote for 100 entries let alone take the time to check out whether they are not fake or manipulated entries. I suppose its a bit much to expect the host to check each entry for this type of practice.

Kudos to you for picking up this fake. Good job,
