And backyard visits brighten the coldest, darkest days of the season while enhancing the survival of our avian friends for everyone to enjoy all year long.
Give Your Birds a Place to Drink and Bathe
In the winter, unfrozen clean water can be even more challenging to find.
And in the coldest climates, rivers, and lakes are entirely inaccessible.
Providing a place for birds to drink and bathe can attract species that don’t usually visit your feeder.
When selecting a birdbath, choose a non-slippery surface and a depth of no more than three inches.
Birdbaths are highly sought after when cold temperatures become a time of drought for birds.
Because water is scarce, it’s particularly attractive to birds.
Keep Bird Baths from Freezing
Keep your bird baths and ponds from freezing with heaters.
Order a bird bath heater today from Amazon and have it delivered to your door in a few days.
We’ve tried several models from Amazon that worked well throughout the harshest of winters.
We recommend the Farm Innovators 75-watt Heated Birdbath $48.82 from Amazon and the Allied Precision Industries Heated Bird Bath with Mounting Bracket $67.58 from Amazon.
Both bird baths will keep your birds happy in the winter.
Another option is to place a heated brick on a frozen birdbath. The brick will unthaw the water gradually and make a great perch as well.
Don’t worry that wet birds will freeze in the winter.
Wet birds won’t freeze because all their feathers make for excellent insulation and birds are smart enough to know when to get wet and when to stay dry.
Now grab your binoculars and enjoy seeing birds.
