Birdbaths Buying Guide

Splish-splash -- the birds are taking a bath! Thanks to yard-appropriate birdbaths, you can draw winged visitors to your landscape. They'll benefit from the addition of water, and you'll enjoy watching their daily routines.

Types of Birdbaths

Types of Birdbaths

Adding a birdbath is an easy way to draw wildlife to your garden. And unlike other items that you may consider for the landscape, a birdbath doesn't involve any costly items to maintain it regularly -- cleaning and filling with water are just about your only concerns. The biggest consideration in choosing between the different types of birdbaths is placement: If you draw birds to your yard, you want to make sure you do so in a way that's going to protect them from predators. To do that, review the various types, including pedestal, ground, hanging, and fountain.

Pedestal

Pedestal birdbaths have a bowl with a base that extends to the ground. These birdbaths lift the water off the ground to varying levels to protect birds from predators and serve as decorative elements in the garden.

Ground

Some birdbaths sit directly on the ground; these typically have a flat bottom to provide a steady base. These baths can be placed in a variety of places in the landscape.

This bird bath fountain offers Solar On Demand meaning you can choose whether or not you desire this feature. Both options are solar operated but the Solar On Demand feature attached to the inner workings gives you the ability to control the solar operation. You asked for it and we delivered!Customer satisfaction is our top priority so when you told us you were disappointed with solar fountains that wouldn't hold a charge we went looking for some that did. Unlike other solar fountains that only run when the sun is shining these new fountains with revolutionary Solar-on-Demand technology work when you want them to. The solar panel on this fountain stores energy so you can run it when it's cloudy or even at night. We're very excited to be the only ones to offer you this fantastic product and we hope you'll love it as much as we do. Additional Features Durable fade-resistant fiberglass resin material Solar-powered low-voltage water pump included No wires; easy installation No plumbing; water circulates itself This item should be stored inside during winter months About this fountainBirds prefer a fountain over a birdbath like people prefer a shower over a tub. The water looks and feels fresher when it recirculates. The Smart Solar Portsmouth Solar Bird Bath Fountain is the most popular bird sanctuary in the neighborhood. The trickling sound of the fountain soothes nerves and eases your mind just like those feng shui masters promised. It's perfectly self-contained and low-maintenance with no plumbing or electricity needed. The solar-powered pump recirculates water through the built-in reservoir. The 2-inch-deep fountain bowl is perfect for frolicking birds and only requires about a gallon of water. Your environmentally conscious friends will be impressed. Moving water is fresher naturally resisting mosquitoes and algae. A built-in filter keeps water clear just clean it every month or so. The included 2-inch extender tube can be added to increase the fountain height. We recommend that you store the bird bath inside during the winter. Special Note: Solar bird baths and fountains require plenty of direct sunlight to operate properly. Please be sure to have a sunny spot to place your bath or fountain. Also the pump must never be operated dry (out of water). Dry operation permanently damages the pump. About Solar-on-Demand technologyWith Smart Solar's Solar-on-Demand technology you have the ability to control when you would like your Smart Solar fountain to run. The solar unit powers an attached self-contained battery that features an on/off switch. When the switch is in the 'on' position the fountain operates as a standard solar fountain. However when solar energy isn't readily available instead of shutting off with Solar-on-Demand the unit will switch to the back-up battery power. This way you can enjoy your fountain rain or shine without interruption. When light is less available the system will run on any excess power that has been stored in the battery. When the battery runs out of power the fountain will shut off until power is readily available again. When using the unit in 'charge' mode the fountain will not run during the day and will instead use all solar energy to charge the battery. This is especially ideal for those who like to have their fountain running at night or who would like to use it for a special occasion at a specific time. It takes about one day of direct sunlight to fully charge the battery. Once the unit is charged it can be switched to 'on' mode to get it back up and running. With the battery fully charged the pump will operate for up to 6 hours. The neighborhood birds won't be able to stay away once you've installed the Portsmouth solar birdbath from Smart Solar in your backyard. Made of a fade-resistant fiberglass resin it features a fountain that gives your avian friends the joys of a shower instead of just a boring dip in some water. The 2-inch depth is also a hit with birds. Because the unit is self-contained and recirculates the water using solar power you don't need to hook it up to a hose or extension cord. read more

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Subtle changes in birdbaths may mean a world of difference to the birds that will use them. For example, think about a perch: It's where birds grip onto the birdbath so they can drink and use the water. Without an adequate-size lip, birds will have a harder time using your bath. That's just one purchase consideration. The others to review before you make a purchase including hanging mechanism/stand, depth, heating/solar, and material. Use our helpful guide to get started on the birdbath that's right for you -- and your yard's birds.

Hanging Mechanism/Stand

Hanging birdbaths have holes or hooks that enable you to suspend them with chains. Some bowl or fountain varieties have a base that can be placed on a birdbath stand.

Depth

Review the depth of the birdbath to make sure birds will be able to use the water to clean themselves and to drink. Too shallow and the birds won't get adequate use from the birdbath.

Heating/Solar

Some birdbaths have a heating or solar element to keep the water warm when cold weather hits. This enables you to extend the life of the birdbath, but if it's not solar-powered, the element will require a power source.

Material

A variety of materials, including ceramic and clay, can be used as the foundation for birdbaths. Make sure the material will not leach anything harmful to birds and that it can be easily cleaned.

Perch

The lip of the birdbath typically provides the perch for birds; look at it carefully to make sure it's wide enough for birds to rest and use the water.
