Bird bath

Here we are; Oregon with rain, rain and more rain with flood warnings everywhere but that doesn't stop the birds from having their Daily baths in our garden birdbaths!

I went out in this constant rain storm here... to clean out the birdbath's and to storm block the bird feeders to help block some of the wind that is blowing the rain into their feeders. I put suet blocks out in case the protection I gave their feeders doesn't work as well as I would hope! Below you can check out our flood warnings and a few photos taken in one of our Oregon towns of some of their flooding. I have standing water in the front and back garden but not real bad yet. We run a pump to send it out to the street when flooding gets too bad. At least we are not as bad as Ethiopia right now with (no) Crocodiles and snakes. The United Nations have been making food drops in Ethiopia but it has been hard getting it to the people who need it because of these Crocodiles and snakes and high waters.

dak-ind, It is not that hard to make your own birdbath... a tree stump and a large plastic flower pot base work perfectly well. You know the shallow plastic dish that you set a flower pot in so that you can water the plant from the bottom. They sell them seperately from the flower pot in almost any store for just a few dollars. And a few dabs of outdoor water proof glue will hold it in place.
