Hot Weather Tip for Birds: An Easy Birdbath

It's 96 degrees. For an easy, inexpensive birdbath, try using a saucer that goes under a flowerpot. I just refilled this bird saucer with fresh cold water and two Red-winged Blackbird juveniles showed up. One drank and the other with spread wing might have been sunbathing (which birds do by lying with spread wings, to help get rid of parasites in feathers). Their mouths are open because they are panting, it's how birds cool off. I am just trying to help the birds and stay out of the high heat, it's like an oven out there!
