Photohides, Feeding station in the cottage backyard

One of the photo hides in the yard of the cottage overlooks a small pond where birds land to drink water. The hide is suitable for two. Photographying in the hide is from a sitting position and we provide comfortable chairs that can be adjusted according to our guests' preferences.
