More info: Water is one of the most important things that can be added to a garden to attract birds. All bird species need water for drinking and preening. Water helps keep a bird’s body cool both from the inside and outside. Water baths can also remove dust, loose feathers, parasites and other debris from a bird’s plumage.

Offering water in a garden will attract more species of birds than just having food and birdbaths are the fastest, easiest way to add water to a garden habitat. For birds to feel comfortable using a bird bath, it should not be more than two or three inches deep. Adding an overturned saucer or level rocks to the center of the bath can add a shallower section or island for birds to use.
