Metal Bird Bath and Bird Feeders
If you want to bring some wildlife to your garden or outdoor space, then adding a bird bath or a bird feeder is a wonderful way to attract beautiful birds to your home. Of course, these unique products not only help to feed and water animals, but they are also a stunning piece of artwork to help you transform any area.
Here at Old N’ Dazed, we love the natural world around us, and we are proud to offer our customers an extensive array of metal bird baths and bird feeders. We are continuously inspired by the animals that we see, and we want to help you get closer to wildlife with our range of products.
Australian bird baths and feeders
We want to help you create a natural habitat that local birds will love, and that is why we have crafted a huge collection of bird baths and bird feeders for your home or outdoor space. We have curated a collection of artwork that is perfect no matter the size of your garden.
If you find space is at a premium, then our Teardrop Bird Feeder is a compact solution that is perfect for hanging on your wall or fence. Alternatively, for a larger hanging option, then our Bird Cage Feeder and Bath offers a versatile solution that the local wildlife will love.
If you are looking for something a little more striking, then our Contemporary Bird Bath and Bird Feeder or the Metal Bird Bath, complete with ornate birds, are two pieces of artwork that will look fantastic in any setting.
The hanging feeders are made from a highly durable 1.6mm mild steel, while the larger products are made from 3mm. This is a very long-lasting metal that is able to withstand continuous exposure to the elements, meaning it will not warp, fade or become damaged due to the weather. This will mean they will last for many years to come, allowing you to always enjoy the stunning wildlife that will start to visit your home.
All of our products are available in a choice of two unique finishes. Our naturally rusted option helps to create a gorgeous and rustic styling that will look fantastic in any outdoor area, while our natural raw steel finish will allow you to paint, or powder coat your bird bath or bird feeders in any style that you would like. Due to the way that we rust our steel, each product will be completely unique in colour and style.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on Bird Baths and Bird Feeders:
What is a bird bath? A bird bath is a shallow basin or container designed to hold water for birds to drink from and bathe in. It provides a water source for birds, promoting hydration and cleanliness.
Why should I have a bird bath in my garden? Having a bird bath in your garden offers several benefits:
- Provides birds with a water source for drinking and bathing.
- Attracts a variety of bird species, enhancing the biodiversity of your garden.
- Adds beauty and tranquillity to your outdoor space.
- Allows for bird-watching opportunities.
How do I choose a bird bath? Consider the following factors when selecting a bird bath:
- Size: Choose a bath that accommodates the bird species in your area.
- Depth: Opt for a shallow basin (1-2 inches deep) to allow birds to bathe safely.
- Material: Bird baths come in various materials, including ceramic, plastic, metal, or stone. Select a material that suits your preferences and climate.
- Stability: Ensure the bird bath is stable and won't tip over easily.
- Safety: Look for a bird bath with textured or sloped surfaces to help birds grip and prevent accidents.
How do I maintain a bird bath? Proper maintenance is essential for bird bath hygiene:
- Clean the bird bath regularly to prevent the growth of algae and bacteria.
- Scrub the basin with a brush and mild soap or bird-safe cleaning solution.
- Rinse thoroughly with clean water before refilling.
- Change the water frequently, especially during hot weather, to prevent stagnation and mosquito breeding.
- Consider adding a small fountain or dripper to keep the water moving and discourage mosquitoes.
Can I use tap water in a bird bath? Tap water is generally safe for birds unless it contains harmful chemicals like chlorine or fluoride. If your tap water is treated, it's advisable to let it sit in an open container for a few hours before using it in the bird bath. This allows the chlorine to dissipate.
What is a bird feeder? A bird feeder is a device or container that holds bird food or seeds. It provides a reliable food source for birds, especially during seasons when natural food may be scarce.
What types of bird feeders are available? There are various types of bird feeders, including:
- Tray or platform feeders: Flat trays that offer birds easy access to food.
- Hopper feeders: Gravity-fed containers with seed reservoirs that refill the tray as birds eat.
- Tube feeders: Long, cylindrical feeders with multiple feeding ports for dispensing seeds.
- Suet feeders: Wire cages or holders for offering suet (a high-energy food made from animal fat) to birds.
- Hummingbird feeders: Specifically designed with nectar-filled reservoirs and feeding ports for attracting hummingbirds.
What type of bird food should I use in my feeder? Different bird species have specific dietary preferences. Common bird foods include:
- Seed mixes: A blend of various seeds, such as sunflower seeds, millet, and nyjer.
- Suet cakes: Blocks of high-energy animal fat mixed with seeds, fruits, or insects.
- Nectar: A solution of four parts water and one part white granulated sugar for hummingbirds.
How often should I refill the bird feeder? Regularly check and refill the bird feeder as needed, depending on the rate of bird activity and consumption. Refill it before it becomes empty to ensure birds have a consistent food source.
Remember to observe local guidelines for feeding birds and choose appropriate food sources to support the health and well-being of the birds in your area.
