There is nothing more beautiful than watching the beauty of nature in action. It’s a lovely feeling to watch different birds fly through the sky and then land in your yard with their lovely bird friends and family members.

Step 1

A bird bath holds water to allow a bird to bathe and drink from it. A bird baths can come in many different sizes and designs. If you love birds and want them to build a home in your backyard or garden, it’s essential to keep the water of your bird bath clean. Switch out the water and wipe the bowl out at least once a week.

Step 3

A bird bath is typically a rounded shallow basin that is roughly 2-inches deep. This basin has to be about one meter from the ground in order to safeguard he birds and the bath from cats. You can adjust the height of the elevation. Although a bird bath can be made from almost anything like a flower pot; commonly it is made of concrete.

Another bird baths type is the type that uses small cups that are arranged in a round-stair fashion. Some cups are higher than others, and the water pours from the top cup down the ladder of other cups finally into the basin. These bird baths are known as "water chain" baths. Birds on these cups look very pretty.
