A couple of years ago I bought this decorative item and hung it in our 'garden art' tree never thinking that it would be anything more than a decoration. One day I noticed a Chickadee peeking inside. I found that rain water had collected in it! I drilled a hole in the bottom and placed a plastic dish inside so the Chickadees could have a drink. The next year a House Wren nested in it, so I bought another just for water.
