That looks like an awesome place for a pond! Very feng shui as well. Water features out front are totally groovy. But I see a couple problems... One is the cold. You might end up re-planting the pond every single year... and that might get pretty old/expensive, unless you get some really cheap plants. The other issue is the birds you mention watching. They might like to go fishing in said pond. And lastly, plumbing the pond and filtering it may also be a bit of a pain/expensive.
However, it's a totally rad place for a pond! You could go filterless and use a few goldies, guppies, or mollies. Whatever the birds might eat, would surely get replaced quickly if you have guppies or mollies. If you're a fisherman, you could keep your live bait in it, instead of dumping/flushing at the end of the day too!
But if it were up to me, everyone would have a pond. Even if you live in an RV, I say build one on a trailer, and tow it with you!
As a matter of fact, yes, I always post, or reply, in novels. I'm adding it to my signature because it seems like I say it in every post!
