Glass Bird Baths
If you would like to add a touch of class to your garden that will also attract a wide variety of birds, glass bird baths may be what you are looking for! These attractive bird bath bowls invite birds of all types to take a swim or a drink before flying of to your backyard bird feeder for their next meal.
If you do opt for a glass bird bath, you should also remember that glass is a slippery surface. Help the birds hold on to the glass surface by placing non-toxic decals in the bowl. These are the same type of decals you may place on your bathtub floor to avoid slipping. Another option is to fill the bowl with stones. This will provide a rougher surface to help birds hold on.
Of course, if you live in a colder climate, you may wish to bring your bird bath indoors during the winter. Remember that while a bird bath heater will prevent water from freezing, it may not be enough to prevent damage, such as cracking.
