    The birds that frequent my bird baths are a great joy to me. I love your ideas. Are those brass rings on the top one with the galvanized cooler lid?

    Brilliant. Wish more people would look after our beautiful wildlife (Sydney, Australia). With a really stinking hot summer, and ferocious bushfires all up and down the eastern coast of Oz., just gone (2019-2020), people need to be mindful of all creatures - bees, butterflies, birds, anything. I have several bee/bug houses nestled in some grevillas in the front garden, which are bushes that attract the local and indigenous bird life. And several bird baths around the front garden.
