There's something fascinating about the way hanging birdbaths seem to not only attract wild birds, but invite them to come by to wade and splash around in them. As many birders and bird watching enthusiasts know, birds naturally bathe or regularly shower themselves with water as a way to maintain their plumage. As many wild birds aren't accustomed to being provided with their own standing area of water for bathing, they must look for places to bathe that are safe from predators. This is why many bird watching hobbyists set up birdbaths within their gardens and yards. Not only do they provide wild birds with a safe place to bathe, but they also help to enhance the bird watching experience for many birders as birdbaths help to draw in more wild birds. There are many types of baths available, from decorative pedestal baths that are great for use all year round to ornamental hanging birdbaths that beautifully adorn trees and posts. There are even birdbath heaters and de-icers to prevent the bath water from freezing up during cold weather. Whether you opt for pedestal baths that stand alone, hanging baths or baths equipped with birdbath heaters, provide wild birds with a safe place to bathe by setting up a bird bath in your garden today.
