If you’re looking to attract birds to your yard, one of the best steps you can take is to install a bird bath. But don’t just fill the bath and forget about it. Moving water is much more likely to attract birds than standing water, so be sure to add a pump or other accessory.

Avian Dripper with Pebble Base
The Avian Dripper from Birds Choice supplies fresh water to your bird bath. It hooks directly to your outdoor faucet and does not need electricity.
