Provide Water to Help Your Birds Make the Best of Winter
Birds need a reliable source for water - even in the winter. You can help them by providing an open source of water. Bird baths can provide a water source and should be heated to help prevent the whole bath from freezing. In areas where the weather can turn cold and possibly freeze the water in bird baths, a heater or heated birdbath can keep an area open in your bird bath.
In winter, clean feathers help birds stay warm, and a bird bath is often the only way to drink and bathe. Research has shown that a chickadee with well-maintained feathers can sustain a 70°F (21°C) layer of insulation between the outside air and its skin.
We offer a variety of bird baths and bird bath accessories that will attract more birds to your yard.
