    Read and identify the correct POINT OF VIEW.As the girl walked up the hill, she realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet.             The cardinal tipped his head back and drew breath to sing, but just as the first note passed his beak he heard the crack of a dead branch far below his perch high in the maple tree. Startled, he looked down, cocking his head to one side and watching with great interest while the man rattled the blades of grass as he tried to hide himself behind the tree.             As the man saw her start up the hill, he moved quickly into the shelter of the huge old maple tree. If she saw him now, everything would be ruined.             She thought she saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when she looked again it was gone.             The man thought if he could stay hidden until she came within range, she'd have to talk to him. Wouldn't she?             The girl shuddered as she felt a silent threat pass over her. It felt like a cloud creeping over the sun.
