Just Add Water!  


   Along with bird feeding, watching and other avian interests, many people often neglect one of our feathered friends’ primary keys to good health and survival – water.  Almost every bird that takes to the sky needs to drink and bathe regularly.

   For birds, cleanliness goes beyond just looking and feeling good.  Being clean is what birds are really all about – and that of course is getting off the ground and flying.  Dirty feathers stick together, add weight, attract parasites and are otherwise unacceptable to any self-respecting bird.  Therefore most birds drink, wash and bath at every opportunity. 


   Birdbaths, like bird houses, should be constructed and sold with the “real” end user in mind.  In fact, the average birdbath sold in retail stores and garden supply houses is generally designed with a great deal of people appeal, but not very practical from a bird’s point of view.  The same goes for many of the commercially made fishponds and water gardens.  To a bird, about the size of child’s teacup, the average backyard water garden must look like an Olympic size swimming pool would to us.

   Unlike people, most birds do not find it comforting to plunge into a hot-tub or pool up to their ears for a good refreshing soak.  Even two or three inches of water in a relatively shallow birdbath, which may not look like a heck of a lot to us, is probably  too deep for the average backyard bird.

   If you are purchasing a birdbath for the first time try to find one that either tapers gradually from the rim to the center or is raised in the center – preferably one that has a rough surface.  If you already own a birdbath and it is deep, a few small rocks can be arranged so that smaller birds can bathe without fear of falling in. 

   Birds need water in the winter just as much as in warm, drier months.  If you live in an area where temperatures dip below freezing, a heated birdbath or a de-icer added to an existing birdbath will go a long way toward attracting birds to your yard. 

   All of the de-icers and heated birdbaths we sell are thermostatically controlled to operate only when necessary to keep the water from freezing.  When choosing a de-icer, keep in mind that large birdbaths or colder climates require higher wattage de-icers to keep at least part of the birdbath ice-free.
