I guess the drought is really hurting the birds. The last two days I had quite a few gather around my sprinkler. Poor things. We haven’t had a rain here in three weeks and that only lasted a few minutes.
I’m thinking about picking up a bird bath. Can people here share their experiences?
- Do they attract birds?
- How often should the water be dumped and changed? I don’t want to breed mosquitoes.
- Is the standard pedestal with basin what I need? No circulator pump?
- location? Shaded area or sunny spot?
Is it worth the trouble of keeping fresh water in the basin? Will it help the birds?
Should I set up a feeder too?
