Hot Days - Bird Water Please

When it's very hot our birds can dehydrate just as we do. If you don't have a birdbath please consider putting out a dish of cool water in shady areas around your garden so these delightful creatures may get a drink. Not only will you be saving bird lives you will also get to see them having a bath or drink.
