DIY Bird Bath

I love birds!  I love watching them out my kitchen window.  

Birds are also great additions to your garden.  I know they can have their issues, but I've been looking into ways of attracting birds to naturally control pests.  

I tend to try and use what I already have on hand when starting a gardening project.  I found this great idea for making your own birdbath using a flower pot drip pan and a hanging plant basket.

I read somewhere that pennies before 1982 contain a bit of copper which helps with algae growth in bird baths.  I'm not so sure about that, but I set Daniel out to find some pennies.  We put some in and we shall see!
