  • Superior to bird baths for birds’ drinking water
  • Attracts species not typically drawn to feeders
  • Economical way to attract more birds

LITITZ, Pa. (June 25, 2014) – As the warmest and driest months of the year approach, Perky-Pet® reminds bird lovers that a source of clean, fresh water can be difficult to find and that, given the choice, most birds prefer to drink from a dedicated drinking water station than a bird bath.

A well-designed drinking water station, such as one of the four Perky-Pet® Waterers, prevents birds from bathing in the drinking water and reduces their exposure to bacteria that can spread disease in a birdbath. Holding up to 2 quarts of water and dispensing it only as needed, a dedicated Waterer also requires less upkeep and maintenance than a bird bath.

An added benefit of Waterers is that they can attract species of birds, including blue birds, swallows and warblers that aren’t typically attracted to most common types of bird seed. Because water costs less than birdseed, a Waterer is an economical way to attract birds for individuals on a budget.

Perky-Pet®, the leader in bird feeder products and accessories, makes four durable and attractive Waterer models — Droplet, Water Cooler, Mason Jar and Top Fill. All four models are easy to clean and feature sturdy perches that withstand weather and pest damage.

The Droplet, Water Cooler and Top Fill models use durable plastic reservoirs. True to its theme, the Mason Jar model is made from strong blue glass reminiscent of a canning jar from the 1800s. The newest Perky-Pet® model, the Top Fill, can be filled either manually or by rainwater through the filtered top cap.
