Donna at Funky Junk Interiors is having a theme party on birdbaths and I thought I would revisit an oldie and feature mine!
When we moved into our new home there were no trees in the neighborhood so it took several years before I started attracting birds to the garden. Spring 2007, while cleaning the garage, I saw that I had a lot of bricks and things left over from various projects. I decided to stack them and make a birdbath stand.
This is still my favorite birdbath! It is also the favorite of the birds here at Robin's Nesting Place!
It has been here for five years now and even though it wasn't mortared together it has withstood our winter weather and many storms.
As you can see it attracts a variety of birds.
During the heat of the summer I will often fill the birdbath with ice water. The birds will come in droves to sit and cool off.
I have a nice concrete birdbath, but the birds don't use it. The clay saucers filled with rocks are a different story!
The larger birds even enjoy the deeper plastic saucer with a few rocks to sit on. It is a great pleasure to provide fresh cool water for my feathered friends.
