Water for The Birds

I want to know if there is anything we can add to the bird bath water to help keep our birds healthy? If you could let me know we would be grateful. Thanks for any information about this.

Hi Kristie;

Changing water regularly and replenishing it frequently is the easiest and least expensive way to attract birds.
Bird baths should be cleaned frequently and kept filled. Some experts recommend cleaning and refilling them daily. Baths should be scrubbed or hosed out at frequent intervals to keep birds safe from salmonella and other disease organisms. Bird bath cleaner

Bird Bath Cleaner

I use "Greased Lightning" and a kitchen brush once or twice a week. It kills algae and bacteria and rinses easily. Also, it is not expensive.

We find that the birds enjoy rain water Changing it daily/weekly helps also. Collect it in a barrel and transfer to the bird bath.
