For mandatory exercise does my prefix stand
Watch out for always in the grass I land
My suffix able of anything it desires
or to withstand pressure and times

What am I?

hint:

In the orchestrated land I lie
Now it's time for some delicious pie

hint 2:

Add a two-letter infix and for a bird you'll confuse me
We are the Lights who say: ...?
