I live in the mountains and I have noticed a lot of birds around this fall. One morning I woke to see the birds pecking at the frozen water in their bird bath! Since I have installed this in the bath, I now have happy birds. Call me silly but I get lots of enjoyment watching my little friends bathing, drinking or just sitting on the edge and taking the occasional sip. Doesn't hurt anyone either. My BB gun keeps the cats away!

Works great in 20 inch plastic birdbath as it looks like an off-white rock Keeps ice melted about 2 to 3 inches around device in sub-zero temps, large enough for birds and squirrels to get to water. Took birds a few days to trust new item with cord hanging from their bird bath but snow covers the cord..

If you live Alberta don't buy it; it's too small and my birdbath still froze over in the cold weather; I ended up buying the larger one and it worked well;no issues, kept the water thawed.

Works great even to -22 C. Snow cover on bird bath edges but still a warm spot for the birds to drink from.
Just ensure - water levels are up and keeping the water relatively clean.

This little heater really keeps the ice out of the bird bath -- even on the coldest Quebec winter days! The birds enjoy a little drink from our bird bath when all other water sources are completely frozen!

The 1st real test arrived this morning (Dec 15 -Ontario Can -12C) with it submerged in a large water fountain bird bath....all of it froze except about a 4 inch diameter area. Birds need to line up and or fight for a drink now compared to when the device de-iced the entire fountain when it the temperatures were a little warmer. I think I will add a second one to open it up even more.

Finally a heater that works. I do have to add water every couple of days. Bought this one as it has good warranty.
