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!

  4. I have done this but added feed and hang it on the lower roosting pole for the underdogs in the flock. Easy to refill and they don't jump on it because it's too unstable for their fluffy butts!

  5. I have done the same thing but added feed so the underdogs of the flock can enjoy eating too. I hang it on the lower roosting bar and they don't jump on it as it's too unstable for their fluffy butts!
