Birds love brightly colored plants and running water. What better to attract your backyard birds than a hanging planter with a built-in water fountain for them. The finches can take their baths while the hummingbirds can feed from the flowers.
Made from sturdy ABS plastic the Bird Bath Hanging Planter holds 1/2 gallon of water that's kept cycling by a small battery-run motor that you can set to turn on at the same time every day. The cycling keeps the water fresh and free of mosquitoes and other pesky bugs.
Birds can drink from the top tier where the fountain is located, and they can drink or bathe from the second tier. In warm weather, flowering plants are great for the lower third tier, but in any weather, you can use that tier as a feeder for seeds, dried worms, peanuts, or whatever your special birds eat. Because most birds will not be able to reach the depths of the lowest tier, you might want to fill it two-thirds of the way up with cocoa fiber or other bird-safe stuffing.
The Bird Bath Planter's measurements are 13.5" H x 11.5" W x 7" D. It comes with a hook for hanging, but if you prefer, you can place the Bird Bath Hanging Planter on a pedestal or table. It will make an elegant presentation.
That's the buzz for today!
