|Appendix F: Live animals|
Although it is not recommended that you keep wild birds at your conservation center, you can attract them to live near-by if you provide the kinds of vines, shrubs and trees which give them shelter and food. An added attraction can be a bird bath. Since most birds love to bathe, you could provide a bath near a favorite tree or shrub. A calabash washstand as shown in Appendix E, would make a very good bird bath.* Since dripping water makes a bird bath even more attractive, hang a large can of water with a hole punched in the bottom, from a branch over the bath. Keep the bath clean and the can filled.
* A shallow wide bowl should be used
