Summertime Bird Baths!

Summer is bath time. Birds need to drink and keep their one set of clothes (until they molt again) clean, so a good bird bath can help them and entertain you. Choose a shallow bath with a NON-SLIP surface, birds need firm footing and a gradual water level. So bypass all those pretty ceramic ones sold in every garden and gift store. A bird bath need not be expensive, I have often used just a plastic saucer that goes under a garden pot. Yes, dripping water is a magnet too. This stone bath is my favorite, I received it as a gift for helping design the Massachusetts Audubon Butterfly Garden many years ago.
