Bird baths are like small tubs that you put in your home garden or back yard, for birds to bathe and drink during the hot seasons. They are usually made in round designs with a tall stand to keep them high, so that they appear clearly for the flying birds. They are also made in small sizes and they are not deep, to allow the birds stand and sit on the edges.
Bird baths are considered as decorative items, like fountains and ponds, in every garden. Garden owners even like to place more than a single bird bath, if they have a wide space. The pleasant appearance of birds bathing and hovering in joy makes it worth trying the idea.
Bird baths are made in lovely designs that depend basically on the material. The basic materials used for these small tubs are metal and stone. Of course the metal type differs and the stone could be concrete or any other type, but they remain the major materials which their varieties control the price and the design.
The stone bird baths are simpler in design and cheaper while the metal designs could be very neat or very artistic as shown in the photos below.
