    A side note on the above photo and keeping fresh water out for the birds; I have been looking around for bird baths for a few months. The  hardware stores had a few options but were a bit expensive and not very interesting. Last  week I checked out Dario’s on Fouth Ave S. in Sodo and there are some really beautiful baths and tons of other statuaries (literally)  and they sell direct to public at wholesale prices. Beautiful pieces at around 1/3 of the store prices. Just wanted to share this gem.  http://www.dariosstatuary.com/  this is the bath I selected. Solid cast concrete.

    Thanks for the tip!  I always put out multiple sources of water for birds and other wildlife, some elevated, some on the ground.  The cutest thing ever was the time I looked out to see at least a dozen bushtits filling my birdbath and just having a riot splashing in the water.

Sorry, comment time is over.
