Don’t You Just Love a Heated Pool? by 

These little birds certainly do enjoy discovering an unfrozen birdbath on a snowy winter day. Look at all that happy splashing! They keep the humans busy refilling it, trying to keep the heating coil under water. The electric ring has a thermostat to keep the water just above freezing, after all we wouldn’t want to cook them. The wire/cord goes over the back of the birdbath and plugs into the same outlet in my garden as my Japanese lantern.

    so brilliant! sure bet they didn’t want to leave

  • Larger birds will move in on them and these will head for the feeder. This was the largest group that I caught. It’s the doves that just sit and sit! Thank you so much for your comment! ☺

    so sweet!! I need to do this for my birds too ~ as soon as I can shovel enough to get out! :) xx

  • Well, I have to admit that the heating coil wasn’t up to melting the 16 inches of snow that fell on it 2 days ago, but I’m sure it will melt it’s way through. It’s really fun to see how happy the birds are when they discover it!! ☺☺☺
