Birds... Water!

By GarageInc

The other day I asked to myself what’s the one thing that will draw birds to our backyards like a magnet? And I said WATER! So I went to the library to investigate…

And found that just as important as food wild birds need water to drink and bathe. If you provide it, winged activity will surely follow.

But don’t think a traditional birdbath is the only way to take the plunge. Experts have come up with all sorts of unique and easy ideas to create a perfect watering hole-from using recycled containers as makeshift baths to building elaborate backyard ponds.

Try some of these hints:

- A couple of nestle terracotta colored plastic drainage trays, (the kind used under potted plants) placed in the rings of a tomato cage, use them as birdbath.
- Often spray water on the trees and shrubs, which keeps them healthy and also attracts ours winged friends.
- Most birds prefer shallow water no more than 1 or 2 inches.
- To prevent messy buildup , put a bucket of water aside for a few days before adding it to the birdbath, it seems to slow the growth of algae.

I hope you can implement any of these tips and I invite you to add any other hint by commenting on this blog.
