Birds and animals instinctively know they must have water in order to survive
and they will go at great lengths to find it.
I found this picture rather sad as they know the faucet is connected to life giving
water, yet, they can't even get a drop.
That's where you and i come in. We can. When we realize birds depend on us for
fresh water for their existence, then we can assist them by supplying their need
for only moments a day. What they give in return is immeasurable.
Below is the picture i see from my kitchen window every day. It is such a delight to
see birds gathering at the feeders and splashing and drinking from the big water
bath. What a haven our back yard has become.
.....:::: Nothing quenches thirst quite like water!
And all God's creatures, like us, need water in all seasons.
I looked out my bedroom window to see this gorgeous cat drinking from the water
bowl i fill outside every morning. ....He and another grown cat come frequently to
lap til satisfied, and then disappear until next time, never bothering the birds...:
......::: It is reported thousands of birds die each year due to lack of water. This need
not continue but we can do something to stop it from happening. This bird in desperation is trying to drink from what little is there and likely contaminated... When the scorching heat of summer comes and rain is nowhere to be found, we must help.
...::: This spring and summer while we are watering our plants and gardens,
perhaps we can place some bowls around with water to provide for the birds
that have blessed us with song. ..
...:::Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
(P.S. One person wrote me to say, "I have never ever heard of birds dying from lack of water." ... If you do a search and put the words in "Birds dying from lack of water" .... there will be plenty but incredibly sad to see .... or hop on this link provided.
