Bathing Birds: Mallee Birdbath

, ,

I am pretty excited as we have a new toy, a wildlife camera to take photos of the birds in our birdbaths. It’s wonderful! I have tried so many times to take photos of the birds in my garden and unless you have a fantastic telephoto lens and loads of time to sit patiently and wait then you can’t expect to get any good shots. This is a red wattle bird captured as it dives down to the water.

These are the first shots taken from one day in one of our bird baths, it was pretty busy! In the image above you can see a spotted dove having a great splash.
A young Magpie splashing about and having a great time!

Many more photos to come, check out the online shop for more info –

      Hello how are you, i came across your address whilst looking for a company that sells the ‘Kingsdale’ poa which i used to have in my previous gardens. I have been looking for this particular Poa for sometime and since its not 1. in season, 2. not popular atm I can’t seem to purchase it anywhere. All the sites that do have it seem to sell it to Trade or retail only, oh well just have to keep my eye open and hope I dont miss the next time or fashionable season that it is out next in the Nursery. Am very happy that I have come across your beautiful site anyway I will certainly keep my eyes peeled for the ‘Eskdale’ that you showed. Thanks, Vicki

Birdbaths designed for birds

Mallee Birdbaths are specifically designed to serve birds. The copper dishes are broad and shallow, allowing birds to land on the edge and walk into the water. The baths are modern, elegant and durable. They are locally made in the Illawarra (NSW, Australia) using materials that will weather well and last decades. For help on which dish to choose, go here.
