A birdbath is a garden water feature that your feathered friends will enjoy, too. Actually, any water in your yard, from a sprinkler, a backyard pond, or water fountain will attract birds and other wildlife. Most birdbaths are specially designed to be shallow enough for the birds to wade in, and many bird baths are on pedestals to give the birds a break from your neighbor’s cat.
Make Your Own Birdbath
You can make a beautiful birdbath yourself using a concrete leaf. To see how to make the leaf itself, go to our tutorial. To turn it into a birdbath, just put it on a pedestal made of concrete or wood, or sit it in among your flowers and add water every day. Be sure to choose a leaf for your mold that will cup into a slight bowl shape, so it will hold plenty of water.
