Buying Bird Baths

Throughout this page I shall showcase some wonderful bird baths, as well as being functional, a nice simple bath, especially with running water, apart from adding some beauty to your garden, are more inviting for your backyard birds.

For those who love bird-watching there is nothing nicer than watching the birds pop in for a drink or entertaining you when having a bath.

Many people feed the birds but forget they also need water. Birds not only need to drink water they also need to keep their feathers clean to maintain their waterproofing. They also use water to cool down in really hot weather. Watching birds in a bath can be huge fun and offers great photo ops. Scroll through to enjoy a wonderful insight into backyard birding!

My Bird-Bath!

5 stars for My Pick!

My Choice!

API Non Heated Birdbath w/ EZ Tilt Deck Mount
API Non Heated Birdbath w/ EZ Tilt Deck Mount

I picked this bird-bath for the size, the amount of water it holds, the erection capabilities, and most of all because it was going on my back balcony.

Sitting nice and comfortable in the corner, the little guys after 4 days have finally started using it.

It's very easy to clean, tip the water out, (bracket allows this) quick wipe and fill it back up. You can also purchase the one that has the heating capability so as the water does not freeze over, but living in California somehow I don't think I have a need for that.

Love kicking back, watching the Hummingbirds buzzing around and the variety of little birds having a dip, so relaxing and recommend you give it a try.

 

A little more cost, but a little more class!
