Solar powered birdbath fountains

  1. 1. Solar Powered Birdbath Fountains Feeding birds and watching them in the backyard is something many people love to do. But many times, it becomes difficult to attract wild birds to the garden or backyard and this can be disappointing for passionate bird watchers and those who enjoy bird feeding. The solution to this problem is a solar powered birdbath fountain. Wild birds can be easily attracted to your garden or backyard, by setting up a solar powered birdbath fountain. Birds enjoy bathing and drinking water the most, since it is more difficult for them to find water than food. Along with providing bird food at a bird feeding station, providing fresh clean water to the wild birds will make sure they visit your artificial bird habitat regularly. How Do Solar Powered Birdbath Fountains Work They are powered by solar panels and they work in the presence of sunlight. They consist of parts like a solar panel, a water pump and a bowl placed on a pedestal. The water is generated by the pump only when it is placed in direct sunlight. The solar panel is located in the bowl or is connected to it and it uses solar energy to generate water from the pump, that is located in the pedestal. The water is then circulated throughout the fountain by the water pump. Also, the water need not be replaced, as it is recycled by a filter that is present in the water pump. Therefore, clean and freshwater is made available all the time, for the birds visiting the birdbath. Benefits Solar birdbath fountains have many advantages. They use a natural and renewable source of energy, namely sunlight, to generate electricity which makes them inexpensive. They considerably reduce energy bills, as conventional sources of energy are becoming increasingly expensive. Solar powered birdbaths are also very easy to set up. They can be set up in places where access to electric power is not available and can also be moved to any place that receives direct sunlight. They are self-contained units as compared to electric water fountains, and require complex wirings and fittings. They are environment-friendly and are also very easy to maintain, as they do not consist of batteries that have to be replaced. They are easy to clean and since the water is circulated continuously, problems related to stagnant water, like mosquito breeding, bacteria infestation and formation of molds, do not occur. Another benefit of solar birdbaths is that the sound created by the circulating water attracts many wild birds and they can be provided with fresh, clean water for bathing and drinking. The only thing you must understand about solar powered birdbath water fountains they do not function on cloudy days and in winters.
  2. 2. Although the concept of birdbath fountains is relatively new, they are available in various designs and are made of different materials, like weathered stone resin, concrete, brass, iron, aluminum, copper, etc. Some of the solar birdbath fountains are also available with an installed heater so that the water in the birdbath can be kept at a constant temperature. A solar powered birdbath fountain can be a great addition to your garden decor and will complement your artificial bird habitat very well. Set up one, to welcome some beautiful wild birds and also enjoy the relaxing sound of the water flowing through the fountain!
