Hatchet Pond

A popular tourists spot for feeding ducks, including resident Mandarin. Good for Downy Emeralds and Red-eyed Damselflies among others. Gets very crowded during the season and on weekends, partly due to the excellent opportunities to observe and photograph forest songbirds up close, hence one of my favourite spots during the winter months.
