In South Glenmore Park, just where the trail drops down into the Weaselhead, there is a path leading through the bush to a spot with two benches.
Not only does it provide a great view of the pond and Weaselhead, but someone has turned it into a feeding station for the birds. I have been there a few times, and there is always birdseed on the rails and ground, and oranges in the trees. If you sit still and are patient, you get great close-up views of the birds. These pictures were taken on June 17, and we saw 23 species from the lookout that day. Here are some of them. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Some small mammals got in on the action as well. Red Squirrel:
A Pine Siskin and a Red-breasted Nuthatch squabble over a good feeding spot:
Finally, this little Red Squirrel rested his head on his hands while he patiently waited his turn at the feeder:
