Want to attract plenty of winter birds? Consider adding a heated bird bath to your deck or yard.
Drinking water can be hard for birds (and other wildlife) to find when the temperature drops below freezing.
If you make some available you're sure to attract plenty of feathered action - even birds that don't normally come to feeders!
A heated bird bath doesn't use a lot of power - usually between 70 and 150 watts, and they are all controlled by an internal thermostat.
A heated bird bath will turn on when the water temperature drops to around freezing and get just warm enough to ensure there is some liquid water available to your birds. And they do appreciate it ass you can see below!
We did the research to find the best 5 heated bird baths and bird bath heaters. All not only offer a safe experience for the birds, they're good value for your money too!
