Just For The Birds Cools Down the Heat for the Birds This Summer
Everyone knows that summer is simply the best time for swimming or taking in a dip. Even birds enjoy cooling down when the weather gets warm, and this summer should be full of great opportunities to witness birds flutter around and take pleasure in a nice bath. Just For The Birds, a specialty shop for bird lovers located in Old Town Spring, Texas, shares some ideas.
Installing a birdbath in the yard provides great enjoyment for birds as well as for those who have the opportunity to watch them.
“Water is essential for birds, and they especially love moving water,” Just For The Birds owner Kathy Coward said. “Fountains are great, but you can help out your bird bath with a dripper or a water wiggler.”
A water wiggler is a battery operated device that keeps water in the bird bath moving. Not only does the moving water attract the birds, but it also prevents mosquitoes from laying eggs, as mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water.
“Also, birds prefer shallow bird baths,” Coward said.
As water evaporates faster in the heat, it is essential to always check that the bath does not dry out.
Just For The Birds is a great place to find bird baths, drippers, and water wigglers. And Coward is just the person to ask about birds.
“It is really important to take the time to slow down, look at our beautiful birds and listen to their songs,” Coward said.
