Did you know?
A rock in the bottom of a birdbath can help attract birds.

Water

Along with a plentiful supply of food, birds also need water and no backyard feeding station would be complete without a birdbath for drinking and maybe the occasional splash. Like feeders, most garden centers carry a dizzying array of different birdbaths to suit almost any landscaping scheme. Your birdbath doesn't have to be elaborate. Any shallow pool of water raised off the ground by a pedestal will do the trick. Check your birdbath often and clean and fill as necessary. You might want to put a rock or something similar in the bottom to break the surface tension. Sometimes birds won't notice the water if it's very still.
