Creating a garden habitat for native wildlife is a landscaping idea that's both attractive and good for the environment. Bird baths provide water for drinking, bathing, and in some cases, breeding.

Here is a photo of a multi-story bird bath created by Art. Not only will it host a larger variety of birds, it is an attractive sculpture as well.

Tranquil bird bath with stone Buddah

This bird bath was built at the entrance to the Prestbury Golf Course in Sugar Grove, IL:

It was constructed on a berm with dried branches, stones and pebbles. The bases of the bird baths were created from old telephone poles.

This native plant garden on the northwest side (of Chicago) creates the perfect backdrop for a multi-level birdbath.

This "multi-media" bird bath was constructed on a concrete slab and uses large stones, assorted logs, potted plants, ceramic pots and candle holders as well as saucers of water. All sit on pieces of cut up telephone pole.

The wooden fruit basket, with a sprawl of American Heritage rock, provides additional interest.

This bird bath was installed in a new garden in Oak Park. (Notice the young plants and markers.) We'll revist this garden in the future.

This bird bath in LaGrange uses rocks as well as logs for support.

Birdbath with stone, rock and deadwood accents, Skokie, IL

Another Skokie bird bath featuring black river stones.

A weathered plank fence and trellis form an interesting backdrop for this bird bath in Oak Park.
