My incorporation of water features for the birds evolved over many years. The first was a pedestal bird bath purchased 30+ years ago. About 10 years later a reflection pool was added to enhance the sitting area under my grape arbor. In 2004 a “natural water feature” specifically designed for attracting birds was added to the garden. A fourth water feature designed as a drip system with water flowing over a column of stones was added in 2007. In November of 2013, a fifth water feature was installed on my deck. This was a commercially purchased molded resin log configuration with a two gallon water reservoir and circulation pump. Landscaping and plantings around each water feature provides security for the birds and offers exceptional viewing enjoyment.
