1. Colinus virginianus
2. female
3. lack of white on chin
4. common bird in steep decline
5. habitat loss

Don't know if I'll be checking this, so here's the next round of questions:

1. Identify this song mnemonic: "cheerily, cheer up, cheer up, cheerily, cheer up"
It's a bit unfair, so if you can't get the ID, here's the species so you can answer the following questions: American Robin
2. What color are its eggs?
3. Is it altricial or precocial?
4. How do pesticides impact this species(Be specific!)

The team may be gone, but the program lives on...

Yes, all good, except for 5 I would also add the increased use of pesticides, as that is also a factor
