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.

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.
