1. Dig a hole and sink a plastic bucket so the rim is just protruding above ground level.



 2. Fill the bucket with bricks, then place pebbles on the top for the birds to perch on.



 3. Plant ivy or another type of evergreen around the rim of the bucket to conceal it.



 4. Fill the bucket with clean water, and enjoy watching your birds splashing around.
