A hanging bird bath is a great solution for a backyard or a larger territory, such as a restaurant yard, or a golf course. Most of the time such baths are made to be decorative. Beautifully designed bowls are hung on intricate chains which get hooked to a tree. Usually decorative bird baths can be made to be functional during warm seasons as well.
Hanging bird bath prices vary depending on the materials they are made of. The simplest plastic bird baths will be the most affordable, however it will not do a lot to make your territory stylish. In fact, plastic bird baths are the worst solution, since birds can gnaw on the plastic and leave dents which will make your bird bath look damaged. The best looking bird baths are the ones made from durable unbreakable glass. The glass usually looks the best and serves the best bird bath purpose as well as makes a great decoration. The durable glass withstands lowest and highest temperatures and is not prone to rust as metal baths might. At the same time the glass hanging baths are easy for the birds to use and can’t be damaged by their beaks.
Bird bath warmers is a great solution for stationary bird baths, however heating up hanging bird baths is not a good idea. First of all, heaters require a power source, while the hanging baths are usually located far from those. The materials which the hanging baths are made of usually don’t support heating. Accordingly, the best way to keep the hanging baths warm in the winter is to change the water there as often as possible. If you live in a cold climate you should opt for a heated bird bath instead or buy a stationary bird bath and use a good quality heater.
