You can have your own bird bath. Your new bird bath does not need to be expensive. Be creative. You can create a bird bath from an old pan or a clay pot saucer. Just be reminded of a few things. To attract more than one bird, make sure the birdbath diameter is at least 61 cm (24 in). Many birds are afraid of deep water so make sure the water in the bath is no deeper than 8cm (3 in) in the center. Choose a light-colored floor which will make it easier for the birds to determine the depth of water. Also a textured surface on the floor provides good grip for bird’s feet.
