For birds, water is essential for drinking and for bathing - a year-round necessity to keep feathers in top flying and insulating shape. During the cold winter months, however, water can be a scarce resource. When water suddenly disappears, birds expend valuable energy and risk dangerous exposure searching for other sources which might mean the difference between life and death in the coldest season. By placing a heated bird bath in your backyard you are providing your neighbourhood birds a much needed source of water when they need it most. The right bird bath can also add a wonderful look to your garden and outdoor décor!
And remember: a heated bird bath is not meant to provide a sauna for your birds. Low-energy-consuming heated bird baths provide just enough heat to keep the water open.
