Birdbath fountains are a great way to add an elegant garden decoration, as well as attracting countless wild birds, to your yard, garden or patio. There is no better (or easier) way to invite a bit of nature into your yard than with a birdbath fountain.
Bird fountains attract a wide variety of neighborhood birds by providing a steady supply of fresh aerated water for drinking and bathing.
The fountain's design helps keep the water in constant motion, which provides yet another natural touch to attract nearby birds. The birds will congregate around the fountain to drink and bathe, as well as to interact with other birds. Once this happens, you've got them hooked...and the result is a true delight both for bird watchers and nature-lovers alike.
Birdbath fountains also provide countless benefits to their human admirers. The sound of running water has a therapeutic effect at any time of day, helping to transform your yard into a soothing retreat. Birdbaths also give children and grandchildren a unique opportunity to witness wildlife first-hand.
Birdbath fountains either run on electricity, requiring a weatherproof power cord and outdoor power outlet, or are solar-powered.
Solar-powered fountains are usually less expensive to operate and require less maintenance than their electric counterparts. The benefits of a solar-powered fountain include: no wiring, no installation and no operating costs. Solar fountains usually rely on a built-in solar panel that powers the birdbath throughout the day and naturally, turns the water pump off at night.
Both types of fountain, electric and solar-powered, rely on a water pump system that recycles its water in a continuous flow.
