WaterWhen used properly, bird baths bring an even greater variety of birds to the yard than feeding stations.
- Bird bath should have gently sloping sides and the water should be shallow - no more than 1 1/2” deep
- Place in the shade of a tree where it will keep cool and close to cover.• Winter is an essential time to keep open water for birds.
- Of course, birds need water to drink, but they also need it to keep them warm. Only clean feathers provide the insulation needed to keep the birds warm.
- Use an electric immersion de-icer to keep your birdbath at least partially unfrozen all winter long. It will offer a water source to the birds.
