The large traditional fountains are suitable for parks and stately gardens. Unless surrounded by water, bowls with low stands are not recommended for use as birdbaths, as cats and other predators would find it easy to catch unwary birds.
A standard water outlet cap may be replaced by a dolphin shown, by a nozzle shown, or by other outlets of your choice.
We have evolved a simple design for use in modern settings, with dolphins shown, with a nozzle, with water outlets capped, or with other outlets. Most sizes of birds like this dish-shaped bowl. It allows them to cling to the edge when drinking, or to splash when standing in the shallow water.
Castings are of iron or bronze
Iron castings are undercoated with two coats of zinc phosphate primer of different colours. This is to show any incomplete coverage. Additional two coats of enamel paint are applied to these. Bronze castings are patinated.
The above descriptions of alternatives give a wide choice. Approximate dimensions are listed below along with the weights. Other combinations of dolphins, nozzles, caps, bowls and stands are also available.
