Who said that bird baths have to be plain and boring? You can choose a funky one like this one.
Most people provide food for the birds but fewer people provide fresh water. Birds love to bathe and in the summer fresh water is even harder to find so by providing fresh water for the birds you are doing them a real favour.
Remember that a layer of algae or a few specks of dirt will quickly build up so it’s important to give the bird bath a clean at least once per week.
