Bird baths are made of all sorts of materials, including stone, concrete, metal and resin. They can be a simple shallow bowl of water or have many features, including heaters, fountains, drippers and misters. The best bird baths imitate puddles, so they shouldn't be too deep - the maximum should be three inches. Don't leave a bird bath bottom too smooth, because birds need to be able to get a secure footing. If it's too smooth, sprinkle some gravel or flat stones in the bottom of the bath. You can mount bird baths on a pedestal or have them sit on your deck or lawn. They can be self-refillable or be a part of a pond garden - whatever you choose, the birds in your yard will be happy!

Fountains and Waterfalls can be as simple as an add-on submersible pump-and-plug or as complicated as a seven-step decorative copper masterpiece - it just depends what you want in your yard. They move the water in your pond or bird bath so that birds are attracted to the ripples and mosquitoes can't breed on the stagnant water. This reduces West Nile Virus and other avian-spread diseases by a fair amount. You'll keep your birds healthy and happy as well as providing a striking feature for your yard.
Drippers , which in their simplest form are small hoses, hook onto your bird bath and provide a constant drip of water into the bath. A dripper keeps the water moving, which is good protection against West Nile Virus, caused by mosquitoes breeding on stagnant water, and other avian diseases that can spread with bird traffic. They are excellent ways to attract birds. Some say that the sound of the water is like a magnet - birds will come to have a quick drink or indulge in a bath. It does great things for your yard, as well - often, drippers are decorative and can resemble a climbing plant, like ivy.
Bird bath misters allow birds to be gently sprayed with cool water during the hottest days of the summer. They're like sprinklers for birds - you set them up near foliage and birds will �leaf-bathe,� or rub themselves against the wet leaves to clean dust from their feathers and cool down.
