We have a bird bath in the back yard. It came with the house when we moved in a few months ago. It’s filled with water, and is sitting in the garden. I’ve cleaned it and changed the water a few times. It looks really nice and inviting. Well, I mean, if you’re a bird.
So where are the birds?
Not once has a single bird ever stepped foot in this thing, at least as far as I can tell. I’ve had bird baths before and seen plenty of birds using them. But not this one.
None. Zero. Zilch.
I have the birdbath, where are the birds??
I know they’re there. I mean, as I sit here typing, I can hear them outside. They sure make plenty of noise.
So what’s missing? I don’t know, but I could probably find out by messing around with different things, or consulting a bird expert. Maybe I need to to put up some well-stocked bird feeders to draw them in. Maybe I need certain types of plants. Or maybe some of the plants that I do have actually keep the birds away. Then again, this is also the yard that my dog wanders. Maybe he’s keeping them away.
I have no clue, but if I really want to see some success, I’ll need to do some research, experimentation, and probably consult an expert.
Just putting a birdbath outside and filling it with water doesn’t mean the birds will come flocking.
