Useful tips

 If you fill your bird baths with water up to a level of 2 inches it will be enough for the birds as they do not immerse their bodies completely in water but just soak their wings. If you want to go for bigger water basins or bird baths you can go for those that have perch islands. This type of bird baths will not only attract more number of birds but will also keep away other unwanted and predator animals from getting closer to birds.

Place your bird baths according to your convenience and make your garden or terrace look more stunning than before.
