Birdbaths can attract species that have no interest in the food stuffs humans offer. Warblers, flycatchers, even vireos can turn up in your "public bath." The odds of attracting such uncommon visitors—including fall migrants leisurely heading south—improve when the water moves. Bubblers, misters, drippers, recirculating fountains, even water wigglers can be irresistible to songbirds and even hummingbirds. Just keep the water fresh and scrub the container every few days to prevent algal buildup.
