Why are there no birds in Guam?
there are birds on Guam, but most of the native birds were killed by the brown tree snake that the US accidentally introduced. The snakes stowed away in ships' cargo brought in from other parts of the Pacific (like the Solomon islands) where the snakes are native.

The island experiences occasional earthquakes due to its location on the western edge of the Pacific Plate and near the Philippine Sea Plate . In recent years, earthquakes with epicenters near Guam have had magnitudes ranging from 5.0 to 8.7. Unlike the Anatahan volcano in the Northern Mariana Islands , Guam is not volcanically active.  However, due to its proximity to Anatahan, vog does occasionally affect Guam.  The northern part of the island is a forested coralline limestone plateau while the south contains volcanic peaks covered in forest and grassland. A coral reef surrounds most of the island, except in areas where bays exist that provide access to small rivers and streams that run down from the hills into the Pacific Ocean and Philippine Sea.

The easy answer is NO. The reason for that answer is that it is a federal territory. There can be no colonies any more. The Constitution of the United States grants all powers… to the States and only the powers given from the States is to be held by the federal government. In this regard any non-State land under the Constituion of the United States is to be considered federal territory, and as such is under the laws of the U.S. Constitution. Each State is under the laws of their own Constitution.
