Tips for Your Concrete Bird Baths
Do Not Overfill Your Bird Bath
Birds will feel more comfortable using your bird bath when it is fairly shallow. You only need about 2-3 inches of water for them to be happy.
Change Water Regularly
If you are not getting any bird visitors, ask yourself when was the last time you changed the water. It is important to change the water regularly as fresh water will attract more birds.
Beware of Predators
If you own or have neighborhood cats, make sure to install your concrete bird bath in an area that would be difficult for them to reach.
Location, Location, Location
The ideal spot for your bird bath: a shady or partially shady area close to trees to ensure birds feel safe. This also ensures that the water stays cool and refreshing for the birds to bathe in.
Birdbaths are an excellent way to attract birds that normally would not be tempted by feeders. This allows for a variety of bird species to visit your bath, allowing you to enjoy their beauty.
