        As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

You should give that id to the h1 element in your header. Hope this helps!

Hey there!

It looks like you placed another <h1> with the class main-heading under the HTML closing tag. The browser only displays HTML elements inside those HTML tags. Everything outside of it won't be recognized.

You need to add the class = "main-heading" inside the <h1> element which is nested inside the Header tag up top. And of course remove the <h1> outside of the html tags! You did it right, with adding the class to the h1, it's just that it's on the wrong line!

Hope that helps, good luck man, you got this thing!
