The PoleWise bird bath is a disappointment. The bowl on mine lasted about 8 months, then broke. Examination showed the whole basin was brittle, probably from UV exposure. Another brand plastic bird bath basin I have lasted over 10 years before needing replacement. To add insult, the PoleWise basin isn't available as a replacement part. You have to buy the entire steel mounting ring and basin together for $20.00 Pretty pricey to get a simple plastic basin. If they all last the same 8 months, the bird bath will cost $30 a year! Shame!
Had a pigeon get his foot caught between the pole and feeder arm. Anyone else have this happen, or have any ideas how to prevent it from happening again?
