Fresh, clean water can often be difficult for birds to find. Water is essential to their survival. In fact, it can be even more vital than food. By adding a Perky-Pet® Wild Bird Waterer to your yard, you will provide your birds with much-needed refreshment and make your backyard the one stop shop for food and drink!
So, you have your bird feeders out and filled to the brim with seed. Birds are beginning to flock to your feeders and your yard is starting to become bird heaven! Yet, you still feel like there is something missing – water!
Birds need water in summer to stay cool, but it’s equally important to offer birds water in winter when most water sources are frozen. During the winter months, many ponds, streams, and lakes are frozen and unusable to birds. Winter is a great time to consistently put out and maintain your waterer.
Birds have an excellent memory and once they realize they have a fresh water source in your backyard, including a bird bath, they will come back time and again. Make sure that you are changing your water frequently if temperatures are below freezing. If it is especially cold, you can use a small outdoor heater to place near your waterer to keep it from freezing.
