Birds use birdbaths for drinking, bathing, and preening. Contrary to what some believe, birds are not okay with using dirty water in puddles. Like any other creature, they need fresh, clean water. This is why choosing the right bird bath is important.

It’s wise to choose a bird bath you can easily keep clean or that has a built-in function that keeps water moving. You can also purchase simple things like water wigglers, fountain pumps, or water drippers to place inside of them to make sure that the water doesn’t become stagnant. The ideal depth of water in a birdbath is 1-3 inches; any deeper and a bird could drown.

Aside from the sheer enjoyment of having bird visitors, they’re actually good to have around. Birds help aerate the soil as they hunt for insects. Speaking of hunting for insects, introducing birds helps with your garden pest control. Bird baths also attract wasps, a natural predator of insects like cabbage worms that can wreak havoc on your garden crops. And don’t forget that birds are also an important part of helping your crops with cross-pollination.
