I don't know the answer to either of these but that's not going to stop me from replying!

78. d? We had a family discussion on Christmas Eve on whether a "calling bird" was actually a species of bird. It turned into us all wondering why everything is doing something in the song (sometimes even "a-doing" something) except for the partridge, the turtle doves, and the gold rings.

79. Hmmmmm. . . b?
