Maintain Stone Bird Baths In Winter
You need to take special care of stone bird baths when the temperature goes below freezing. Water can collect inside bird bath bowls and freeze. Therefore, we suggest bringing your bird bath indoors during the cold winter months to avoid damage due to ice and freezing temperatures. If this is not possible, make sure you empty the water from your bird bath bowl at least several times per week. Once the bird bath is empty, you can cover it with something absorbent, such as an old towel. Then, cover the bird bath with a water resistant covering like a tarp. Secure the tarp on to the bird bath bowl to ensure it will not blow away in strong winds. For additional care for your stone bird bath be sure to review this article.
