Here at the Catbird seat keep out some water, lets see - 5. Water is always in demand.
A good porch water station must be small enough to quickly dump and refill - often.
That is due to birds being messy and skeeters. Plus a coon can empty it at one drinking.

Put out water and birds will come.
This is just "drinking water".

Right now at the branch in my yard, 3 birds are taking a bath. There are most always birds in it. That is more than most are interested in doing, so just put out a shallow bowl on you porch.

Today I put out #6, need to retire a couple.
I ran across this and wanted it. I set it on the deck rail.
