Please welcome “The Mini” dish to my bird bath family, yes, they have been breeding and this is the result 😉 a small shallow bird bath that holds 2 litres of water and is 420mm wide x 25mm deep. In the image below you can see how they compare in size to the large dish. This size has been created as I was getting requests from clients with small gardens for something that would be more in scale with their outdoor space.

This bird bath can be purchased over here.


They look great sitting on a piece  of steel pipe or with their own mini sandstone plinths.


The copper will develop a blueish patina or verdigris over time that will seal and strengthen the dish.

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.
