Bird Bath

Bird Baths

A bird bath is an artificial ""puddle"" or small shallow pond, created with a water- filled basin. It is used to attract many different species of birds and provides a safe place in which they can bathe and 'cool off', or get a drink. Bird baths provide a reliable source of water for birds, especially during the summer and drought period. A bird bath can also be used to accentuate your garden or back yard and be a central feature of an overall plan for a garden setting.
