Mynah should definitely be accepted. I kept thinking I was spelling it wrong.

Still not a songbird, which are a subset of passerines. Mynas are more closely related to starlings.

Wrong ColoHarpare.........It may seem surprising, but the question of whether or not a bird is considered a “songbird” is not determined entirely by a demonstrated ability to sing. There are parrots that can sing along with Sesame Street (personal observation), but they are not songbirds. Ravens rarely sing at all, but they are songbirds nonetheless. Starlings do sing with their squeaky little voices, and they are indeed songbirds as is the Myna......http://www.second-opinion-doc.com/the-reasons-starlings-are-considered-songbirds.html

You are right. Wikipedia says musk oxen range from 400-900 lbs. Whereas beef cattle can go from 1000 - 3000 or even 4000 lbs.

Yes, I tried mantis, when it didnt accept, I guess it must be something else, so tried moonfish, and all sorts of combo trying to remember mola mola (which is actually called moonfish is dutch, but isnt the same as the above moonfish) And meerkat definitely should be accepted, I thought I was going crazy trying all types of spelling. (Mongoose, have heard the name before but if you would ve said it was a type of moose I would ve believed you...)

For the duck hint can you also accept "Merganser"? The males of the Common Merganser also have green heads.

I think the “common” in the clue is supposed to hint at Mallard and it's what should come to most people's mind first. But if the Quizmaster really wants to make sure, he could change it to “most common” (this is true worldwide), seeing how there are quite a few duck species with green-headed males.

I agree with the other comments regarding the mockingbird. There are tons of songbirds out there that imitate other animals' calls, certainly not an exclusive trait to mockingbirds. How about changing the clue to “Songbird named after its ability to imitate other animals' calls” or something like that?
