Attracting Birds with Water

Bluebird in Water


A year-round water source is one of the 12 Elements of a Thoughtful Bird Feeding Station and is one of the major components of any backyard habitat.  Adding water to your backyard will increase the number of birds that will come to visit.  It is almost as important as food.  Birds not only use water for drinking, but also for keeping their feathers clean. 

During extreme heat birds have difficulty regulating their own body temperature.  They don't sweat and cool down through their respiratory system and will need to replenish this lost fluid. 

In the winter, keeping their feathers clean and healthy can help a bird stay warm.  They will puff their feathers up helping to insulate their bodies.  You may have seen a chickadee that looks more like a puff ball than a bird in the middle of our cold winters.  Research has shown that a chickadee with well-maintained feathers can sustain a 21° C layer of insulation between the outside air and its skin.

When most people think of providing water to birds, they think of a bird bath. Birds are attracted to the sound of moving water. Attaching a dripper or mister to your bird bath provides a source of moving water which backyard birds find irresistible! Many birds such as chickadees, finches and titmice will land on the dripper spout and creep down to the end and lean over to take a drink!
