    Caren-That is very nice. Where did you find the items you used to make the bird baths?

    Congratulations!  You have inspired me to try to make one.  In fact I will be searching for the glassware this morning at the mall.  One would think I have enough water for the birds with 2 birdbaths and a pond…..LOL  Mind you, I have the perfect spot for a new one…LOL

    Stella -

    No such thing as too much water for the birds!  LOL  I have 4 birdbaths in my backyard and 1 in the front yard!  AND – my home is on a pond!  So I might be a little obsessed but the birds love it and they look so pretty.
    With the different bird baths at varied heights it allows the birds (and squirrels!) to choose their favorites.  I noticed that the bluebirds use only 2 of them and both are blue.  Coincidence??  They bathe in one and drink from the other.  Pretty smart!  I hope you’ll post a photo of the one you make.  :)

    Congratulations, Caren!

    Thanks for sharing your stories about the smart Bluebirds!

    Okay, now, about those squirrels…have they ever broken your glass bird baths?  You don’t have to answer this….maybe your squirrels are good, but mine are bad, lol.

    The squirrels don’t bother with the glass birdbath.  I’m assuming it’s because I have 2 low to the ground birdbaths in the same area and they go right for those.   I try to think ahead of the squirrels  LOL!  Sometimes it works and sometimes not.  My husband is the only culprit that has knocked over the glass birdbath. (bumped into it while mowing the lawn.) Fortunately, it didn’t break.
    Here is the squirrel’s preferred drinking source. The glass pedestal birdbath is just to the right and behind the tree.
