Birds love to bath and drink. A common sight is to see birds gather in a puddle of water and flap their wings while they bath on a hot summer day. A good birdbath will have a gradual slope and rocks or gravel can be added to give birds a place to sit while they sip water. The rocks and gravel can provide footing for the birds as well as heat which makes bathing more enjoyable. A heated bird bath or a birdbath with a bird bath heater are also recommended during the cold months. These thermostatically controlled bird baths will allow the birds a place to gather during the winter months as well as provide you with the enjoyment of watching the birds all year round. Whether your bird bath is ceramic concrete or plastic,the birds will love you for providing water.
