Sometimes fresh, clean water is hard for a bird to find. You can make a bird's day simply by offering a drink and a bath. Parent birds will often bring their babies to the bath after they fledge and show them where it is. Like the baby robin getting its first bath in a Bird Bath Fountain Water will actually attract more species of birds than feeders will. Birds such as wrens, catbirds, and waxwings, who eat insects or fruit, don't visit most feeders. But a birdbath attracts all kinds of birds. Bluebirds, robins, catbirds, warblers and thrushes.
We've even watched screech owls drinking from a birdbath at dawn. Put your birdbath in your garden, yard, or patio, and the birds will find it quickly. Watching birds at the birdbath brings great happiness to a home. It's one of the easiest ways to bring birds up close, where the whole family can get a really good look and enjoy their beauty.
