Your feathered friends, that is. :) Birds get most of their summer water from the insects they eat and from berries, fruit, etc., but they still enjoy a cool drink. As well, birds bathe often in summer to help remove parasites, clean their skin, and remove oil and dirt from their feathers to keep them in good condition.
In hot weather, it is difficult for our feathered friends to find water, so don’t forget to top up your bird bath, if you have one, or set out something as simple as this sectioned dish I used. (above) It’s a heavy plastic “plate”, saved from a TV dinner, and it works just fine as a bird saloon. We’ve had baby chickadees romp in the shallow water, and several other birds that have come for a quick drink. A dish like this is easy to clean and should be filled with fresh water daily — at the end of the summer, you can toss it in the recycle bin.
Now, to get a photo!
