Bathing is the washing or cleansing of the body in a fluid, usually water or an aqueous solution. It may be practised for personal hygiene, religious ritual or therapeutic purposes or as a recreational activity.

Bathing can take place in any situation where there is water. It can take place in a bathtub or shower, or it can be in a river, lake, water hole, pool or the sea, or any other water receptacle.

A Birdbath is an artificial “puddle” or small shallow pond, created with a water filled basin, for birds to bathe and ‘cool off’ in, and drink from.  A bird bath can be a garden ornament, small reflecting pool, outdoor sculpture, and part of creating a vital wildlife garden.

A birdbath is an attraction for many different species of birds to visit gardens, especially during the summer and drought periods. Birdbaths that provide a reliable source of water year round add to the popularity and “micro-habitat” support

Watching the Birds Bathing in the Birdbath is a very relaxing way to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon cup of tea…

This beautiful fountain inspired us to set up our own bird feeding and bathing area amongst a little grove of trees just outside of our kitchen window.  The birds gather there almost every day giving us hours of entertainment.
