This wonderful stone bird bath features all-natural stone to give your outdoor space that natural look. This is a great way to incorporate interesting design or décor concepts into the mix without disrupting the natural look of outdoors. Birds will no doubt appreciate this stone basin design since it doesn’t look like anything out of the normal to them – this could just be a hollow stone that’s gathered plenty of rainwater for bath time!

5. Bird Basin

This great bird basin sits in the ground so that birds can easily swoop in for a drink or for a quick bath. This basin almost blends right in with the grass, so to a bird, this just may look like a delicious puddle perfect for a drink. This is a more natural way to incorporate a model of your choice into your outdoor setting without having to purchase anything expensive. This is even a relatively simple idea you could do on your own with a basin, a shovel and some elbow grease.

6. Low Stone Bird bath

This lower to the ground, stone bath for birds is the perfect way to add some class into the yard without an overpowering structure. A lot of people prefer simpler things to decorate with, and in this case, simpler is much better. The beautiful carved stone delicately encompasses a bowl of water perfect for the birds visiting your yard. The stand on this particular one is also stone, which matches the carvings and makes the piece look well put together.

7. Water Bowl

The concept on an in-ground wash basin is a relatively modern idea that makes it easily accessible to flying friends and an eye-catcher for guests. In this yard setup, the water bowl is set in what appears to be a rustic landscape. The subdued gray of the shale rock and the misty purple flowers make this bowl look in the right place and adds the perfect amount of natural wonder to the scene.

This all-natural rock bath features a stone bowl with added rocks to the bottom. This design brings in the natural beauty of nature while serving as a watering hole for your feathered friends. This is a deeper bath for birds than most, which is perfect for larger animals or even ground birds such as quail or pheasants (depending on the area you live in) to stop by and get a drink without over stressing themselves.

10. Rustic Bird bath

This rustic bird bath gleams almost copper in the setting sun as these two birds stop for a refreshing drink of water. No matter the landscape, you can easily find the perfect design to incorporate into it. In this setting, a broad succulent fans out behind the feathered duo while a red budding plant glows fiercely under the setting sun. The delicately carved bird bath is simple enough to not take away from all these natural elements.

 11. Elegant Bird bath

Source

This elegant bird bath is quite the sight to see! Imagine being a bird and being able to splash around in a feature like this? The gorgeous light jade color paired next to the jet black metal fixture makes this particular design an art piece in itself. This could almost be considered a bird pan, since the basin itself is so wide and shallow. When I saw this, I immediately thought of a lily pad atop a still, calm pond.

12. Cement Leaf Bird baths

Source

These adorable, tiny basins could have just been an outdoor embellishment in themselves. Since they are cupped, they easily turn into a unique bird bath or a series of basins. Hey, you never know, some animals may prefer a private bath! Basically anything that could hold water could be transformed into a basin and these little beauties are no exception. They look great set up in a row like that, but can also be scattered around the yard for added detail.

13. Tiered Bird Bowl

Source

This green tiered bird bowl is a wonderful, modern design that can either add some extra intrigue into a garden design or stand alone as its own focal piece. This cool basin almost resembles a fountain, but it’s meant specifically for the feathered beings. The marbled green bowl and underlying platform must shine brilliantly in the sun, making for a gorgeous side piece to any garden atmosphere.

14. Vibrant Bird baths

Source

These vivid and vibrant bath designs look great within this backyard design concept. This just goes to show how versatile bird baths can be. In this setting, the neon red and yellow basins cut against the natural green grass, adhering to this colorful design scheme. The couches with matching vivid outdoor cushions is a great way to keep the eye moving and sticking to a common theme. This would make a perfect outdoor family area.

15. Recycled Bird bath

Source

This unique bath for birds was constructed from recycled auto glass. The glass was molded and sealed to create the bowl of the bird bath, giving the bowl that awesome textured glass design. Since bird baths are so versatile, you could essentially create your own design out of recycled materials, as well. Maybe not using glass, unless you have the experience and the materials, but you can finds all sorts of things to recycle into a basin for your neighborhood friends.

16. Giant Bird Bowl

Source

This giant bird bowl is pretty much the centerpiece of this unique outdoor design. Modernistic and extremely posh, this concept features a deeper bird bowl than most of the other designs we’ve seen thus far. The bowl is positioned in the center of the outdoor area encircled by interesting rocks and plants to keep up with the natural look of this concept. The murkier look to the water in this bowl doesn’t mean that the water is dirty, but it could be a purposeful paint job to resemble a more natural pond look to the water.

17. Modern Concept

Source

Here’s a great design idea for anyone that has an air conditioner drip in their yard. Since the air conditioner unit is dripping condensation anyways, why not turn it into a modern bird bath structure? This gorgeous element is simple in design, yet completely eye-catching and unique. Those wonderful glass bulbs add a level of intrigue and even cast a delicate shadow over the whole piece. This is a great idea and you are recycling condensation to help your feathered friends.

18. Crackled Creation

Source

This gorgeous crackled cobalt blue bird bath hangs from a wall or branch with ease. This design is very modernistic and is definitely eye-catching. The glass holds that cobalt blue color so perfectly, I can only imagine how spectacular it looks in the sunlight. You can hang this model pretty much anywhere since it probably comes with a sturdy backing. This is a great design that is simple enough to add some color to an area yet gorgeous enough to stand alone.

19. Decorative Bird bath

Source

Here’s a great concept if you want your bath for birds to be part of a theme. The small water pump right next to this small bird bath gives that nostalgic feeling of pumping water from the well. Of course, this is more than likely not a real pump, but the concept is cute and it add an interesting perspective to the décor. This is a fun idea for the nature lover or just someone who appreciates all things rustic or antique.

20. Fountain Feature

Source

This modern bird bath is more of a water feature than just your typical bird bath. The flowing waters are complete with light fixtures that can actually double as an evening patio feature or path water fountain. During the day, you bird friends are sure to appreciate their time at the “pool” and no doubt your bird bath would be the most popular watering hole around.

21. Colorful Water Bowl

Source

This colorful water bowl will make one of the most beautiful baths for birds you can find. Its unique design and color schemes makes this a gorgeous piece for any backyard space. If you don’t want to put water in it, you could always double its use and make it a bird feeder by simply placing seeds into it instead of water. Either way, this gorgeous bowl and stand will look adorable.

 22. Statue with Water Basin

Source

If you or someone you know is really into art statues, this is the perfect bird bath design. This gorgeous bronze statue is roughly cut, bringing all sorts of interesting patterns and textures into play. In her hands sits a large, wide basin perfect for your feathered friends to come and have a bath in. Not only is this just a bird bath, but this piece is truly a work of art.

23. Bird Pond

Source

These may not actually be bird ponds, but they’re so cute, I could imagine a feathered friend thinking that they’d stumbled upon their very own pond. Nestled right atop a wooden stump, these wide bath basins look more like little pools. The bowls themselves are cut to resemble a wooden bowl which only adds to the natural charm. This is an adorable concept that your feathered friends and human friends will surely appreciate.

 24. Bird Tub

Source

This adorable antique bird tub would be the perfect fit in the antique lover’s garden. It’s rustic enough to have that country chic charm but still very useful in that it seems to be a large size and many birds can visit the tub at once. The shape itself is relatively odd, but a charming sort of odd that is sure to act as a focal piece for years to come.

25. Bird Pillar Fountains

Source

Most designs don’t need to be circular or even a basin of any kind. If you prefer the more modern concepts or are interested in more unique concepts, this bird pillar water feature should be of intrigue to you. The water gets gently pushed out the top of the pillars, creating the perfect bubbling of fresh water for birds to either come take a drink at or flap their little wings around in.

26. Turning it to Artwork

Source

This water basin features an interesting piece of artwork sprouting from the middle of it. A metallic lily pad tier or other tropical pad plant cascades up almost as a stairway as the cool waters of the bird bath sit below. This is also a good idea considering more birds will want to stick around and “chat” after having a nice drink of water on a hot day.

Bird Bath Pedestal Ideas

 27. Emerald Bird bath with Pedestal

This particular model boasts a gorgeous glazed emerald overlay on what could be a stone or rock bird bath. Bird baths with pedestals are naturally elegant and keep your bird friends safe off the ground from predators. The classic look of this bird bath is made almost artistic by the beautiful green sheen it has. Having a classic bird bath like this one in the garden would be the perfect attraction for guests.

28. Mosaic Bird bath Stand

This thick mosaic bird bath stand holds a tiny bowl, making this setup unique and quaint. It’s not overpowering, but the unique and delicate mosaic work within the stand of this bath for birds make the piece a definite eye-catcher. This would be an easy DIY project if you have some cement and old ceramic plates lying around that you don’t know what to do with.

29. Elegant Summer Garden

This tall bird bath is the perfect addition to an elegant summer garden. The tapered pedestal features carved statues of women dancing in a garden scene. This would be an ideal design for a clearing or an area that needs a special focal piece. If you have an atrium or a patio area, a wash basin with art on it like this one would be ideal.

30. Decorative Garden Bird bath

This decorative garden bird bath features tiny lily pads and a bird perching at the mouth of the bowl. The jade color of the bird bath itself is actually very stunning and the tiny artwork attributes within the bowl of the bird bath only add to the charm of this pedestal and basin set. It would look great in a corner garden or even close to a garden gate.

31. Blue Bird bath

Source

This gorgeous blue ceramic bird bath would make the perfect addition to a garden that has a lot of flowering plants or bushes. Since it’s vibrant in color it is sure to stand out against the other plants in your garden and make for a delightful centerpiece. Even just a garden with a lot of green foliage will make this bath for birds stand out.

32. Statuesque Bird Bowl

Source

This cool design almost looks like a statue in itself. At first glance, it probably even looks like some sort of modern fire pit, but it’s quite the opposite. This is a bird bath that demands attention and this concept would look great in a wide open garden so that this bird bath gets the attention it deserves. The modern design includes sleek, flat columns along the sides that support the marble bowl in the middle. Quite an interesting concept.

Source

This stone bird bath invokes all the beauty of nature. The neutral colors and even the natural shape of this model make it the perfect quiet place for birds to enjoy a bath or a refreshing drink of water. It almost looks as if this bath for birds could have sprouted overnight like a gourd meant for the birds. It’s adorable and the perfect addition for that natural side garden.

35. Black Textured Bird bath

Source

This black textured bird bath features long lines throughout the pedestal and actual bowl to the bird bath. It’s an interesting design that would look great in a polished garden with matching attributes. The gazing balls and extra garden décor seen in the photo help enhance this rather artistic scene without adding too much into the area. The natural wood color of the fence behind the bird bath help make the colors in this garden pop.

36. Tapered Bird bath

Source

This tapered teal bird bath would look great in a smaller garden that needs a little extra décor. Since the design surrounding this bird bath is so unique, even if you don’t have a whole lot of room for decorating, this piece could pretty much stand on its own. It’s sleek, pretty and your bird friends are sure to find it more than inviting. Make sure to keep this one by a window so you can watch all the action!

37. Homemade Bird bath

Source

This bird bath was constructed from materials found around the garden and/or house. It sits secluded in the bushes for added privacy for the birds, but if kept by a window, you can discreetly watch all the action from your feathered friends without them even knowing. All you need to create a bird bath like this is some sort of base to hold up the basin that can hold water.

38. Rock Bird bath

Source

This bird bath is set right into a rock. Keeping as many natural elements in a garden as possible is always a good idea if you want to attract more of nature’s creatures along. In this case, birds are sure to flock to this bird bath since there is nothing (that they can tell) that is man made on it. The rock and water bowl is as natural to them as stumbling upon a rained over rock in the woods.

39. Bird bath on Thin Pedestal

Source

This is a great bird bath to adhere to that minimalist effect. The thin, long rods of this bird bath pedestal make this design seem delicate and intriguing. The tiny bird statues at the bowl of the bird bath are adorable as they peer out waiting to greet their friends flying in for a bath or drink of water. This elegant design would look great in a courtyard or covered patio area.

40. Stone Tree Bird bath

Source

This bird bath resembles a twisting tree trunk holding the bowl in place. The tiny bird statues on the mouth of the bowl peer out into the wilderness in the fantastic rustic piece. With so much detail, this bird bath is sure to be a focal piece, so you’d want to make sure a bird bath like this is out in the open for all to see. Or even tucked into a garden setting like the setting in this photo.

41. Suspended Bird bath

Source

This bird bath is suspended by chains, creating a rustic yet highly decorative piece you could place just about anywhere. The bowl of the bird bath appears to be made of stone or textured metal, making this piece great as a standalone or as part of a bird bath and bird feeder duo. You could even get a matching bird bath and fill it with seeds to create a feeder partner with ease.

42. Glass Bird bath

Source

This gorgeous bird bath has been hand painted with three colorful birds at the base of the bowl. The glass in the bowl of the bird bath is textured, giving the colors of the birds an even more interesting effect. This bird bath is basically a piece of art, so you’d want to make sure you have it in an area where it would get the attention it deserves.

43. Dish Bird bath

Source

When I said you could make a bird bath from just about anything – I meant just about anything. In this interesting recycled bird bath concept, an old TV dish is being used as the bowl of the bird bath. Whatever works! This once piece of junk that would have been tossed in the garbage is now a great bird bath for all the birds in the neighborhood.

44. Hand-molded Bird bath

Source

This bird bath appears to be created with clay and is more than likely handmade. Creating a bird bath from clay would be a great project for a couple or even a family with kids (and plenty of patience!). Clay can be easily formed into just about anything, and this adorable heart embellishment in the center of the bowl of the bird bath is a sweet reminder that it was made with extra care and love.

45. Flower Bird bath

Source

This cute concept features a bright, yellow flower as the bowl of the bird bath. The pedestal of the bird bath is green for the stem, naturally. This is a cute way to add some flair into the garden or backyard space without overdoing it. I could even imagine two or three of these adorable bird baths in a garden setting to add that extra level of whimsy.

46. Flower Pot Bird bath

Source

Another great DIY project, you can make a bird bath out of flower pots. The pedestal to this bird bath is two or three flower pots glued together and then painted over. The bowl of the bird bath itself may be a bit more difficult to find, or you can even just create a wide bowl from concrete or hardening clay. The whole thing is painted over with dark paint and mosaic pieces and jewels are glued on to create a stunning work of art.

47. In-ground Bird Basin

Source

This in-ground bird basin resembles a rocky pond. In fact, I do believe that the plastic basin used in this bird bath project was initially intended for a water feature. Since its sturdy in material, you can easily transform a basin like this into a natural in-ground bird bath. Add some rocks and plants along the edges to create that pond effect.

48. Colorful Flower Pot Bird bath

This is an adorable idea that shouldn’t take long to do and won’t cost you much, either.

49. Branch Bird bath

Source

This bird bath features a twisting branch that is holding up the bowl of the bird bath. Any kind of bird bath that has natural elements (or elements that appear to be natural) are a plus because they will make any outdoor area look fabulous. This would look great on a stone patio or even in a courtyard among colorful flowering bushes and trees.

50. Simple Stone Bird Bath

This simple stone bird bath is elegant and simple. It stands boldly against the colorful flowers springing up around it. That natural stone grey color is a great way to incorporate natural earth tones into the setting, which looks especially great paired up against those vivid flowers. Bird baths don’t need to be very elaborate to look good, as this bird bath boldly states.

Bird Bath Ideas with Flowers

51. Watering Hole

Another in-ground bird bath, this one features a rock cavern surrounded by beautiful foliage and flowers. The two little bird statues at the base of the bird bath are quietly nuzzling each other under the bright sun. Bird visitors will surely appreciate the simple beauty of this design and will appear to you in droves. It’s a unique but interesting concept.

52. In the Middle of a Flower Field

This would attract birds to your garden without question! Having a standalone bird bath in the center of a flower field not only looks gorgeous, but will coax more birds to the scene since it’s so out of the way and far off from a porch or patio where people gather. Being able to watch birds at a safe distance will attract more birds to the area, and this scene is absolutely breathtaking.

53. Flowers, All the Flowers!

This bird bath contains actual flowers and leaves in it to create a gorgeous natural piece. Although the flowers and leaves in this photo appear to be real, you could always incorporate felt or plastic plants and flowers to prevent the water from rotting or becoming cloudy. If you were to use plastic plant pieces or flowers, they would surely last longer, too.

54. Large Garden Basin

Source

This large, wide bird bath acts as a compliment in this already spectacular garden. Being able to attract some friendly birds into the mix would be a great addition, of course! This bird bath is more out of the way of things, but still stands proudly amongst the gorgeous blooming foliage. Bird baths often act as a conversation piece or art piece easily placed in an outdoor area.

55. Granite Goodness

Source

This granite or stone bird bath sits quietly among the flower garden. In the spring and summer, this bird bath probably sees many visitors in just one day. The flowers in this garden are stunning, and the simple grey color of this bird bath help the colors of the garden flourish without any sort of interruption. You will probably only notice the bird bath is there once you see all the magnificent birds taking advantage of it.

56. Lily Pad Wash Basin

Source

This lily pad bird bath features an adorable frog spouting water out of his mouth into the wonderful bird bath bowl. This bird bath doubles as a water feature, and would make an adorable addition to any sort of garden or courtyard garden. With so much character, it’d be hard to find garden décor that could match the cuteness of this feature.

57. Swirly Whirly

Source

This back bird bath features an interesting swirl right into the bowl of the bird bath. The texture within the bowl of this bird bath adds an interesting concept that anyone would find intriguing. The water in the bowl of the bird bath adds that depth perception which adds elegance and grace to the structure. This would look great in a side garden or even on a covered patio.

58. Black Rose

Source

This scene looks like something out of a garden magazine. The black bird bath stands strong against the subtle green foliage while a delicate pink rose rests upon the bird bath’s bowl. The color features in this scene are absolutely stunning and I can’t help but think how gorgeous this scene would be during a light spring rain or early morning fog.

59. Wooden Wonder

Source

This wooden bird bath or textured bird bath that resembles wood, is a cute way to bring the birds on by. I could imagine a bird bath like this one outside of a corner café or garden art party. The dove stops by for a drink of water as the gorgeous purple flowers surrounding the bird bath grow underneath the strong sun. The texture in this bird bath is enough to add intrigue without much color or design.

60. Fairy Garden Delight

Source

Even the fairies need bird baths to watch butterflies come through! This adorable tiny bird bath is a cute way to add some fun into your fairy garden. The colorful bowl in this bird bath help make those gorgeous purple flowers pop with color. This would make an adorable attribute to a child’s fairy garden project or just in general.

61. Pretty with Petals

Source

This bird bath resembles a massive flower opening up in full bloom. The petals of the flower are what create the massive bird bath bowl. The flower appears to be made of some sort of finished metal and the design within the flower is gorgeous. So many textures within the natural carved metal makes this element gorgeous in its simplicity.

62. Open Flower Beauty

Source

This bird bath depicts another wide open flower in bloom. The elements in this particular bird bath are quite intriguing with all that gold color. This bird bath is probably comprised of bronze or another treated metal that can withstand holding water for so long without rusting. This would make a gorgeous addition to a front yard garden or sitting area.

63. Pebbled with Flowers

Source

Proof that the birds love this bird bath setup – they’re all flocking in for a drink of water! This gorgeous bird bath looks as if stones or pebbles have been piled up to create a unique pedestal and bowl concept in this bird bath. The bright flowers bloom strongly next to the scene bringing in all the best elements of nature into one setting.

64. Decorative Flower Pedestal Bird Bath

Source

This bird bath features decorative painted daisies right at the base of the pedestal. The gorgeous painted flowers add so much character to the design that the bath itself can remain simple. The interesting bowl shape also resembles an out of the ordinary bird bath that would look fantastic in any garden setting, including a covered patio setup.

65. Pastel Mosaic Bird Bath

Source

This pastel mosaic bird bath is so unique and adorable! The colors are fantastic and would make this bird bath the perfect spring addition to any sort of garden imaginable. The curvy pedestal of this bird bath is an interesting shape which leads up to the wide bowl of the bird bath. All of it covered by these mosaic pieces gives this piece so much color and beauty.

66. Hanging Pot Bird Bath

Source

This hanging pot bird bath is just part of this great hanging pot garden. It’s a great way to incorporate a little something for the birds that visit your garden in an already interesting garden. Since most of the flowers are suspended in pots, it only makes sense that the bird bath would be, too. It’s an interesting concept that will make your friends impressed for sure.

Winter Bird Bath Ideas

67. Frosted Over Bird Basin

Even in winter birds need a place to drink water. In this bird basin, the frost has taken over, creating the iced over water you see here. There are many ways to prevent ice from forming in your bird bath, but most of these ways require a heated element of some sort. You could always cover the bird bath to see if that prevents the ice from forming.

68. Bird Bath in Snow

This adorable little sparrow has stopped by for a drink in fresh snow. If the temperature of the water inside the bird bath is a bit warmer than the outside, that will prevent it from freezing. Usually, collected water won’t freeze over if it’s warm enough. Hopefully this little bird was able to get his thirst quenched on this particularly cold day.

69. Heated Bird Bath

Source

Here’s a great heated bird bath concept that even uses snow for the water. Way to recycle! Using a simple plug, a bird bath can easily be heated enough to prevent the water inside the bird bath from freezing over. It’s hard for most animals to find fresh water to drink during winter, so having a heated bird bath on your porch is a great idea.

70. Winter Bird Bath

Source

As you can see, when birds find a fresh watering hole during winter, they are sure to flock to it throughout the entire season. This is a picturesque scene with all kinds of different wild birds near the forest’s edge. This would be great to have set up by a window so the entire family can look out on all the different birds coming in for a drink of water.

71. Elegant Winter Bird Bath

Source

This bird bath stands proud in the snow as two gorgeous red cardinals swoop in for a drink of water. This is an elegant bird bath since the pedestal rods are so thin and the black cuts out from the white snow. This is a truly original winter scene that is so picturesque, you could probably even make this your holiday greeting card.

72. Painted Hummingbird Bird Bath

Source

Adding pops of color into your winter garden scene is never a bad idea, and with this unique design, the birds are sure to come flocking over. Delicate hummingbirds peer out of the bowl of this bird bath while the black stand sits boldly underneath it. This would look great on a garden patio or even near a courtyard window so you can see the birds in action.

To Conclude

So what bird bath idea are you leaning toward? Feeling like you’d like a porch or covered patio setup or are you into the stand alone bird bath right in the middle of the plants and flowers? With so many great ideas, it may be hard to choose just one concept, but you can always mix and match to create your own unique bird bath scene!
