"a cute bird is behind you" is more efficient, though less colloquial

I don't understand the purpose of the second 的 in this sentence

1) for the rhythm of colloquial speaking 2) 可爱鸟 sounds like a proper noun, but not wrong though.

What tone is 只 here? According to the matching exercise earlier, it's 1st tone (yìzhī), but it sounds more like third or neutral in the recording.

Sounds like first tone to me. Here's a good website to practice listening for tones: http://pinyinpractice.com/tones.htm

The 1st tone is a “flat” tone. At long as the pitch is not too low to be confusing, it is still the 1st tone. The pitch can be mid-high~mid-high or high~high as you see fit.

"there is a cute bird right behind you" should also be correct, no?

Pretty should be ok, I think.
