I'm getting an error from StudentsCode.cs when the only visible document is CodeChallenge.cs.

StudentsCode.cs(15,2): error CS1525: Unexpected symbol }', expecting,' or `;' Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

What does this error have to do with my code?

var birds = new[] 
    new { Name = "Pelican", Color = "White" }, 
    new { Name = "Swan", Color = "White" }, 
    new { Name = "Crow", Color = "Black" } 

var mysteryBird = new { Color = "White", Sightings = 3 }

Hi Jason, Your error is caused by a very simple yet important syntax requirement. You forgot to add semicolon at the end of - var mysteryBird = new { Color = "White", Sightings = 3 } - It should be: var mysteryBird = new { Color = "White", Sightings = 3 };

Thank you!
