Silicone at each place where the water flows down.
Let harden and then fill with water.
A smooth flow.

    It not the pecking or eating the caulk that is the problem. It's the leaching of the chemicals from the caulk as water flows over it. Bluebirds, finches, and hummingbirds are highly sensitive to chemicals. Butterflies can be affected looking for a drink. Pet shops sell food safe silicone caulk. Mainly for fish tank repair because of the chemicals in regular silicone caulk. Parrots and parakeets are extremely sensitive to chemicals. Even off gassing fumes can harm them.

      The silicone I use is for household projects. I know chemicals are bad for our feathered friends, but truly don't believe putting just this small amount is harming them. Were expose everyday to more harmful chemicals in our own homes .
