    Why are Ground Bird Baths More Natural?

    Because Birds Bathe More Naturally at Ground Level! Think about it… before humans ever started offering bird baths for feathered friends, they got along just fine with shallow pools of water and puddles. Freezing temperatures likely created some problems as the shallows froze over, making it more difficult for birds to find water. The concept of eating snow for water seems logical- but if you’re a bird it’s pretty much half baked! The reason being is that it takes energy to convert the snow to liquid.
