Birds of a Feather Flock Together
The definition of a bird bath is a small puddle or pond containing water and of course artificial. Not all of our native birds eat at feeders but they all require water to drink and bathe.
A red-headed woodpecker is an example of a bird that does not feed from a feeder. It feeds from the bugs in the bark of deteriorating(dead) trees or tree branches.
Does A Solar Bird Bath Really Exist?
A solar bird bath does not really exist. Solar energy provided by the sun through the use of cells creates electricity and, in solar bird baths, the solar energy runs a small pump keeping the water somewhat fresh due to the circulation provided by the pump. These pumps can be floating or submerged. The water should be replaced daily, with or without a pump, to avoid reproduction of any insects which require water to reproduce. Many of the vendors which advertise a solar bird bath have just put together a bird bath/pump combination package. The words originated the combos. It is possible to purchase the pump as a separate item.
The pleasure you will receive from your bird bath, be it solar bird bath or otherwise, will be welcome especially during the warm months when many birds have migrated to the North. The wide range of birds will astound the viewer. Being outside will bring peace, release the stress of a job and bring a revelation of how simple life can be.
