City Birdbath

Materials

  • Wooden window box
  • Flower seed or plants: zinnia, verbena, marigolds
  • Potting soil
  • Plastic container small enough to fit in the window box
Directions

If you live in the city or you want to see birds at your window, try a window box with a bird bath as the main attraction.

  1. Plant your selected seed or plants in soil in the window box, leaving room for the plastic container to fit in the middle.
  2. Fill the pan with water and place in the window box. If the water is over two inches deep, place a rock in the middle for birds to perch on.
  3. Rainwater is best, so whenever you can, collect it and save it to use when refilling the bird bath.
  4. You might want to string popcorn, berries, raisins, or nuts around the edge to draw the birds attention.
