I sunk fifty bucks into a fountain for my birdbath.
Splashing water attracts birds. Would this bring more visitors?
I installed it early one morning, before work. I returned home anxious to see what, if anything, had been enticed to the fountain. Would the bath be full of birds? Perhaps new species which had never swung by before? What awaited?
Here's what awaited.
It had been such a hit that the birds had splashed most of the water out. They knocked the fountain over, causing it to run dry. Running dry killed the motor.
They broke it.
Who knew something could work so well and so badly at the same time?
