There’s really not much time left to find that perfect gift and get it by Christmas, but offering a shopping spree at a cool store is always fun! Folks do love to browse and shop for themselves… especially when they’re not paying!
So many unique, yet bird-friendly items to be had, it might even be a difficult choice! The hanging bird bath shown includes a solar bubbler and decorative river rock. The rock helps to both camouflage the pump and offers birds better footing.
Because fresh water is the best way to entice feathered friends, moving water is even more effective! The pumps (solar and electric) are offered separately so they can be added to an existing birdbath if preferred. Leaf misters, bath drippers and water wigglers are all neat accessories with big impact. Moving water simply attracts more birds!
And that immediate, personalized gift certificate? No kidding! Purchase any an e-gift and we’ll email you a large, colorful, personalized gift card to print out and give to the recipient. Place it in a box, gift-wrap, and ta-dah… one awesome gift in hand! Tons of fun to choose from including birdhouses, feeders, garden art and more. The list is complete and shopping is done!
So when it’s 90 degrees, how useful is that heated bath? Certainly unplugged and cord tucked for the season, it will still see daily activity and may even be life savers for some birds during severe drought. Regardless of seasons, water is a critical life source for all beings.
When folks turn their baths over for winter, the birds who depended on that water source must find another. I wonder what they must think? The birds that is- not the people! “Don’t they understand, we need water in winter too! It really sucks trying to eat snow, takes too much energy.”
Whether you’re thinking of purchasing your first birdbath, or adding an extra one to your habitat, heated bird baths are a wise choice for year-round use. Because another severe winter looms on the horizon, resident birds will benefit as will your whole bird-watching experience!
July can be a scorcher for wildlife, especially with recent droughts and above-average temperatures. Natural water sources like puddles, creeks and shallow pools all but disappear during summer heat. Adding fresh water to the garden may prove to be a life saver for birds and other animals whose habitat continues to shrink. Something as simple as a plant saucer filled with water will see winged visitors happily partaking in the essential life source.
Adding bath accessories like leaf misters, water wigglers, or this solar bubbler can bring a pedestal or hanging bird bath to life! Circulating water stays fresher longer and acts as a magnet for birds! They’re totally attracted by the visual of moving water, and the soothing sounds can be a welcomed addition to human ears as well.
No need for the whole set-up either, these battery or solar powered accessories are a la carte! Some even operate from the outdoor spigot. Add them to your existing bath for a whole new dimension in birding. Hummingbirds are especially fond of birdbath fountains, while butterflies covet the gentle spray of leaf misters. Songbirds around our place actually sit and wait for the drppers to start each morning, it’s looks like a bird spa!
Consider one of many “moving water” accessories this summer and see which new visitors show up at your place. Especially during spring and fall migrations, you may be quite surprised!
