description of a bird bathit is round like a bowl and filled with water. birds are attracted to the bath and then they bathe in it.
Many overgrown gardens and older homes are littered with old, crumbling cement bird baths, which are long past their prime for aviary bathing. But with just a little effort and a few inexpensive supplies, that old birdbath can have a new life either as a planter or frog pond.Turn an old bird bath into a planterTurning a decaying bird bath into a beautiful planter is a relatively easy feat. The shallow bowl of the bath is a perfect home for shallow rooted ground cover type plants. For this purpose, little has to be done to revive the old bath. In fact, for a rustic look, the bath can be left as is and simply planted with soil and ground cover. When placed next to a garden or outside the garden shed, this makes a beautiful planter. For a more polished look, spray a quick coat of paint on the outside of the bath bowl and pedestal; textured rock-look paints work great for this project.Turn an old bird bath into a frog pondTurning a bath into a frog pond is a great choice, especially for a bath where the pedestal has been broken or is in really bad shape. This project uses only the bowl, so the pedestal can be discarded (or used for another project, like creating a potted plant stand). Simply paint the outside of the bowl (or just the rim, since much of the bowl will be hidden by dirt and plants); do not paint the inside, as you do not want to put dangerous chemicals into the water for your frogs.Dig a shallow hole, a few inches deep, and place the bowl in it, so that even smaller frogs can jump up onto the bowl’s edge. Fill the bowl with a few rocks, so that frogs can sun themselves and have help climbing out of the water. Then add water and you have a spot fit for froggies and even tadpoles.Of course, a bird bath can always have new life as a bath again. Just get some pre-mixed concrete patch and patch any larger holes, then repaint the outside of the bowl (never paint the inside) and the stand, and it can be a beautiful aviary sanctuary all over again.
A bird bath .
Yes. You shouldn't force them into water... spray the with warm water with a spray bottle or offer a warm bath in a bowl or bird bath from pet store. (Do NOT buy from Petsmart or Petco. They are very cruel.)
A birdbath is typically a shallow bowl filled with water that is either on the ground or on a pedestal. Birds will use the water to drink or take a bath. You can purchase a bird bath at your local garden store.
The best way i think to attract wild birds is to get a bird feeder or bird bath from any garden shops and for the food at any pet stores or you could make a homemade bird bath with a few stones and an unwanted bowl, then just add water

Yes, bowl is a noun, a singular, common, concrete noun; a word for a thing.
You don't in the conventional sense - you provide a shallow (half an inch to an inch) bowl of 10 or more inches across, of water, and let the bird bath, or not. If the bird is un-used to having a bath provided, it can take ages (days and weeks) for them to work-out what it is there for. You can also VERY LIGHTLY, mist them from a hand-held mister/spray as used to mist house-plants - this also encourages them to preen.
