Bird Baths

Many people put food out for birds, but fewer provide a regular supply of the clean water that they need for drinking and bathing.

Water is particularly important during the winter when natural supplies may be frozen, and in dry, hot weather during the summer when water can be hard to find. Most birds drink by dipping their bill in water and throwing their head back to swallow, although pigeons and doves are able to immerse their beaks and can drink continuously.Water to bathe in is just as important for birds, especially in winter. It is essential that they keep their feathers in good condition, and bathing is an important part of feather maintenance. Dampening the feathers loosens the dirt and makes their feathers easier to preen.
