Bird Bath...I mean Spa


During this summer's drought we've been hosts to the new, super-cool hot spot in the neighborhood. A spa in its own right for our feathered friends.



My hubby noticed the birdbath kept running dry in a matter of hours. He'd fill it up on his lunch hour and get home after work to find it empty. Hmmm... Was there a crack in the dish?



Nope. We simply get so many visitors in there splashing and drinking they run the birdbath dry! So hubby rigged up a hose and set it to run every 12 hours. Not good enough...we were still running dry. So he set it to go off every six hours. That seems to be working.

Therefore, we can no longer call this a birdbath. It's a bird spa.






Ok. A wildlife spa.



We're not the only ones doing some bird watching.


I guess we'll have a splash of refreshment, too, while we watch:
