Bird Baths

Bird baths are shallow basins sometimes ornaments filled with water for wild birds to drink from and bath in. Birdbaths are deliberately mounted around schools, houses, recreational facilities and other premises as a way of attracting birds and it is a best way of watching them as they come.

These birdbaths are usually mounted in gardens, balconys, roof tops and any open space that birds can easily and safely access. As such, anyone who is fascinated by birds can easily attract them by making a simple birdbath from old tyres. Cut an old tyre into half and fill it with water. Alternatively, fill a plough-disk with water and place it on some stones as simple as it sounds birds will be attracted.

We have a concrete bird bath at the BWZ office, it attracts lots of birds. Our current species list has 26 species as common birds around. Visit us and get more details and help on making a bird bath at your home.
