Songbird Garden Embossed Made in the U.S.A., this vibrant blue glass basin is hand-painted and will surely add interest to your garden, deck or patio. Its stand is constructed of wrought iron and powder-coated in a durable black finish, and it folds easily for storage. It requires around 1-1/2 inches of water to submerge the pump, on which sits the solar panel. It features four nozzles that each offer different spray patterns. songbirdgarden.com

The Birdhouse Chick Mosaic Bubbler This column-style, artistic selection will entice your feathered friends with moving water and its soothing sounds. It comes with two fountain heads, so you can switch between a bubbler and an umbrella spray pattern. It’s made of fiberglass with reinforced concrete, and features a natural Verdi gris color with a contrasting band of mosaic tiles. It's equipped with a patented solar panel and pump system, and a fully charged battery provides up to six hours of run time. thebirdhousechick.com

Editor's Notes

June 16, 2019:

Moving water not only attracts beautiful songbirds, but it also deters mosquitoes, as an added bonus. When you go with a bird bath fountain that comes with a solar panel, you’re choosing to save on your utility bill while also being kind to the environment. Today’s selections range from the utilitarian to the colorful and ornate. Our list has something for every taste and budget.

Retaining its top spot is the strikingly deep blue Smart Solar Ceramic, which not only attracts wildlife, but also has a durable build and is simple to put together. It offers a generously sized bowl that’s 17 inches in diameter and is encircled by rows of light blue and white flowers. Its smooth surface is a breeze to clean, and it’s also light enough to be carried by most people.

Joining the selection is the Vivohome Set, which comes in your choice of copper or green – both of which resemble an antique, engraved work of art. The solar panel is incorporated into the bubbler, which sits in the basin. Three sturdy stakes hold it firmly into the ground. You can switch between four spray patterns, thanks to its interchangeable heads.

Another new addition is the Greta Arts Santa Fe, a cascading fountain with five terra cotta bowls through which water trickles, before being recycled back up again. They’re made of ceramic, with eye-catching mosaic accents. Included are thorough instructions on how to take it apart periodically for cleaning, so it should run smoothly for many a day in your garden or on your deck.
