Our heated bird bath is soaking in bleach right now. It will be on the deck within the hour. The birds that were on the sunny edge of our pond yesterday morning are back. They found melt water there yesterday in early afternoon. Today, we'll see how long it takes them to find our open water. We have a simple metal pan, heated electrically from beneath, mounted in a rough wooden frame. We tend to avoid fancy. Birds have never complained.
