Looking for a birdbath

Over the course of the year I have been casually looking for a birdbath for my garden, but the only birdbath I've seen was at Obi and it was basically just a bowl with a ceramic bird decoration

Are they not a "thing" here?


I have something like this in mind:



Anyone have any suggestions on where to look? Even if it is pretty far away, I can incorporate it into a motorcycle trip this spring

You're probably better off looking outside the German speaking part of Switzerland.

Re: Looking for a birdbath

How about this? Or this (not sure if sent from within Switzerland)?

Otherwise perhaps search for Vogelbad on toppreise.ch, or on ebay if you don't mind going north (quite a bit perhaps). Seeing this is not the season you may want to ask the usual suspects (Jumbo, Hornbach, Bau+Hobby, Obi, etc) what they usually have available in spring.

Re: Looking for a birdbath

Thanks for the replies so far. I am in no hurry (obviously, it not even being winter yet), so I am just collecting ideas and information for now

Eh? Have you not looked out of the window recently? I thought even Basel has some of the white stuff!

I was referring to the official start of Winter Solstice, on the 21st of December
