Circulating Fresh Water in a Bird Bath
There are many different kinds of birdbaths on the market. A feature that might make the birdbath especially popular with the local birds is moving water. Moving water fascinates and attracts birds. Adding a mister or a fountain to the birdbath will increase the number of birds that visit. For example, a hummingbird will not wade into water but they love to fly through it and get their feathers wet. Moving water will prevent mosquitoes from breeding and mineral, plus it will lessen the chance of mineral deposits and minimize stains and water contamination.
