A 5-second video of one of my improvised birdbaths with dripping water.
The sounds are bird calls and a click at the end when I stopped the camera.
Stone with a depression, water dripping through a piece of PVC pipe that replaced a more attractive bamboo pipe that soon rotted. Since I made pics and video, I added a mossy stone that keeps critters from moving the pipe.
Larger birds tend to splash out much of the water during their ablutions. The rate of drip is just enough to keep the bath filled with clean water. Once in a while we turn on the water full force to wash everything clean. It takes several efforts to return to just the right amount of drip through a nearby hose that feeds the pipe.
This is one of two bird baths fed by dripping faucets. The regular birdbath has a faucet with a brass quail handle and another stone with a depression that catches overflow, favored by certain tiny birds.
I do not have bird feeders. There is ample food for birds here that grows naturally or seeds from what I grow. Water is at more of a premium.
Do you provide water for birds and other small creatures?
