C# C# Objects Encapsulation with Properties Properties

Not sure what's wrong with my code to replace accessor methods with a property

I reviewed the questions asked and I am still getting the error "your code cannot be compiled." Why?

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Frog
    {
        private int _numFliesEaten;

        public int NumFliesEaten;
        {
            get 
            {
                return _numFliesEaten;
            }
            set
            {
                _numFliesEaten = value; 
            }
        }
    }
}

It looks like you have the correct code but you'll need to remove the ; after public int NumFliesEaten
