Discover bird baths and bird feeders with water bowls – ideas for your garden. Let’s kindly provide birds with a daily supply of clean water for drinking and bathing.
In the summertime, the temperatures rise, and the thirst is getting stronger. The time is for refreshment and freshening outdoor designs. We’re all looking forward to cooling water in these hot, hot, hot temperatures – be it in the form of a drink or a bath. Birds also need a bit of cooling and water. So, let’s place bird baths or bird feeders with water bowls in the garden. That is a loving way of providing birds with a daily supply of clean water for drinking and bathing – to quench their thirst or just to splash around.
Have a look at these bird baths and combined feeding stations with water bowls – all designed in style with modern architecture. Whether constructed from stainless steel, or aluminum, with a powder coating, these bird baths from OPOSSUM design can be stylishly integrated into both modernist and traditionally designed gardens.
A Nest-Inspired Bird Bath and Feeding Station
What could be cuter than designing a bird bath in the shape of a nest? The bird feeding station with water bowls (in the cover photo) reinterprets a bird’s nest: with stainless steel and porcelain as modern materials and in a timeless design.
Highly curved “twigs” and “branches” stylize a bird’s nest. Three porcelain bowls for food and fresh water are reminiscent of egg shells and are protected in the nest – as the bird bath rests on a 1.5-meter-long bar at a safe height.
Combination of the Bird House and Bird Bath
A far-reaching roof protects the feed and fills the bird bath with water when it rains.
The roof of this modern stainless steel bird house is so ingeniously folded that it catches water and directs it into a porcelain bowl. Even in light rain, it allows the drops to flow into the bird bath. The bird bath fills itself. At the same time, its size protects the birds’ feed from moisture and snow.
The modern, linear design is combined with nature here. A branch can be inserted into two holes provided for this purpose, serving as a landing aid for our feathered friends. A hookable ball attracts even more visitors.
The porcelain bowls are removable and can therefore be easily cleaned. This birdhouse is resting on a 1.5m long stainless steel rod, beveled at the bottom for easy insertion.
Bird Bath in the Bauhaus Style
Have a look at this stylish bird bath in the Bauhaus style that matches houses with modernist architecture. Designed by Richard Sinning.
The combined feeders and drinkers are real alternatives to traditional bird baths.
Clear shapes, openness, and branches as a natural landing aid characterize these Bauhaus-style bird baths with an additional feeding station. According to the manufacturer, these bird baths are rust-free thanks to the aluminum (powder-coated) and stainless steel materials.
In its proverbial openness, the drinking trough allows birds to approach from different directions. Two frost-proof porcelain bowls can be easily removed and cleaned. Tip – put fresh water in the bowls daily, or at least every other day (fresh water = healthy birds). In winter, the porcelain bowls can be used as an additional food depot: simply sprinkle some food in them.
A self-picked branch, which is inserted into two openings, provided for this purpose, serves as a natural landing aid. A ball – in summer it is best to use the summer variety – attracts additional birds.
Made from just one piece of aluminum sheet, laser cut, with a white powder coating (permanently rustproof), these drinking and feeding stations do not require any welds and are also rust-free thanks to the stainless steel rod used. According to OPOSSUM design, these bird houses and bird baths are produced entirely in Germany with local suppliers and therefore guaranteed free of child labor.
Square – Circle – Triangle – the Geometric Design of a Bird Bath
Linearity in its most reduced form: a bird bath in a timeless design. A porcelain bowl is embedded in a square sheet of metal. A high-curved corner holds a beechwood stick and serves as a welcome landing stage.
Modern, timeless architecture, functionality in detail, and balanced proportions characterize this bird bath. Design: Richard Sinning.
Laser-cut from just one piece of aluminum sheet, with a white powder coating, and then edged, it does not require any welds. The appearance changes from every angle. In its proverbial openness, the drinking trough allows birds to approach from different directions. A stainless steel rod – 1.5 m, one end is cut at an angle for easier insertion into the ground.
Two frost-proof porcelain bowls can be easily removed and cleaned. A self-picked branch, which is inserted into two openings, provided for this purpose, serves as a natural landing aid. A ball – in summer it is best to use the summer variety – attracts additional birds.
