Splish, Splash - Your Feathered Friends Will Love Their New Bird Bath
Create your own tranquil oasis with a bird bath in your garden. Whether you’re a birdwatcher or you just love having a nice water feature in your yard, you’ll love the great selection of garden bird baths from Hayneedle.
A bird bath is a classic way to bring a decorative touch to your garden and attract local birds at the same time. Most common is the pedestal style bird bath made of cast stone, ceramic, metal, or resin. You'll also find a great selection of hanging bird baths, tiered styles, deck-mounted options, and more. Place your bird bath in a spot where you'll be able to enjoy the activity, and if it's a fountain bird bath you'll need to place it near a power source. Or, consider a solar powered bird bath and all you'll need is plenty of direct sun.
Take a look at what’s new in bird baths today:
Solar Bird Baths: Give your backyard birds a treat with a solar-powered bird bath! These modern designs feature a self-contained unit that recirculates the water using solar power, so you don't need to hook it up to a hose or extension cord. How’s that for convenience and function? Solar bird baths come in many styles including pedestal, tiered and ground designs.
Heated Bird Baths: Enjoy seeing your feathered friends all winter long with a heated bird bath to provide a source of fresh drinking water. Beautiful on a deck or patio, you’ll love the look and function that heated bird baths provide.
Bird Bath Fountains: The trickle of water will attract birds to your fountain, and you’ll want to stay a while to watch, too! Bird bath fountains come in many designs from traditional to modern. Find a cast stone pedestal fountain or a unique wall mounted fountain for your home. Whichever design you select, the birds will love the new retreat you’ve created in your garden.
To keep the birds coming back, change the water as often as possible and scrub the basin with a stiff brush once a week to eliminate algae and other debris. Fountain bird baths stay fresher a little longer because of the circulating water. You can even add a water pump to a standard bird bath and get the same effect. The flowing water attracts the birds, creates a soothing trickle, and reduces algae and mosquitos. Consider other perks, like a heater, to keep the water comfortable in the cooler months.
