What's your favorite birdbath?
I bought a very tacky, cheap birdbath at Menards last week, but it was exactly what I've been looking for.........something that drips. I have a mister, but it requires that I leave my hose on all day, which I don't want to do.
My little stocktank ponds just don't seem to be very bird-friendly, so I've been trying to figure out a good bath for them. I've tried all different kinds. I think the major flaw in most of them is that they are too deep. I've tried putting stones/rocks in the middle of them, but they just don't attract the birds.
The favorite around here used to be a low spot in our drive! But we got it regraded and that low spot is gone!
Here's a pic of the tacky birdbath I got. But no one has come to it yet. It might need a better spot. You can't see, but water drips out of holes in that little umbrella-type top thing.
Plus, the little fountain pump hidden under that dome could easily burn out if the water gets very low......which it does quite often on dry hot days.
What's your favorite birdbath and why?
