A fountain is a wonderful addition to your garden landscape and a reliable way to attract birds to your birdbaths. Birds are attracted to the dripping or running water sounds of a birdbath fountain. If you would like to increase the number of birds visiting your birdbath we recommend placing the bird bath next to a bird food source. It is also important to place the fountain bird bath in an open site. Birds are typically vulnerable to predators because they cannot fly well when their feathers are wet. Placing the bird bath in an open space will allow our feathered friends to have a clear view of oncoming threats. Additionally, any bird bath should be filled with clean water – imagine trying to bathe or drink in water riddled with algae, mud or even worse… bird droppings!
