Pretty painted birdbath- please help...

This past winter I decided to paint my ugly, plain cement birdbath and I decorated it with some pretty marble stones and colorful petals, adding two real looking birds. Problem is: No birds liked it!!! We've always had tons of birds bathe and drink from it before. I've since removed the artificial birds, hoping that might be the problem, then took several of the colored marbles out-- they too were cemented in so the birds couldn't choke on them, but still not one bird has even sat on it and it's been plenty hot enough. I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of what is keeping my bird friends away from it??? You can see the before and after pictures here. Please help.. I miss watching our birds bathe
