The Echoes Bird Bath is one of our top-selling designs. Made from frost-resistant glazed terracotta, it has a subtle green mottled colour. The Bird Bath features a ripple step design that is both visually attractive and functional by providing extra footing/grip for wild birds.
The quote imprinted around the rim is by poet William Blake.
‘To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour’
The birdbath comes complete with 3 glazed mounting feet, raising the bath slightly above the ground. This will help to prevent frost damage in the same way as your garden pots.
If you want to raise the Echoes Bird Bath higher off the ground. If so, you may separately purchase the matching Echoes Bird Bath Stand, our specially designed pedestal for this bird bath.
Birds will need to have clear visibility as they bathe. Choose a location that is easily visible to birds in other parts of the garden so they will notice its availability. All the better if that location also offers good views for watching birds.
If the bath is too exposed, birds may not use it. Nearby cover such as bushes or trees offers perfect places to escape to if they feel threatened. But don’t put it so close that predators could easily hide and attack from.
