    Product Details

    The Cardinal birdbath is a fan favorite! It’s one of Burleys most popular birdbaths and for good reason. The cardinal is not only Ohio’s official state bird, but also 6 other states’ official bird! These beautiful bright red birds are showcased in the design, each hand painted by one of Burley's artists.

    Burley is best known for our unique hand painted birdbaths and planters. 100% handcrafted with rich clay deposits in Roseville, Ohio. Burley is the last American Made pottery factory around. We still make pottery using the lost art of Jiggering and some of our jiggermen go back generations. All hand-painted planters and birdbaths are signed by the artist who paints them, making each one unique and personal. 

    Top: 16.5”d x 3.5”h  
    Pedestal: 19”h : 4"d(top) & 10.25"d(base)
    Weight: 13lbs / 16lbs

    Care Instructions

    Place your birdbath away from foliage where predators hide.
    Place your birdbath a few yards from trees so that birds can perch on limbs and groom themselves.
    Keep water fresh to attract birds and prevent algae.
    Add Burley Clay’s birdbath fillers or rocks for birds to land on when drinking or bathing.
    To prevent water from freezing in your birdbath in the winter use a de-icer.
    If your birdbath cannot be maintained in the winter turn your birdbath top over or take indoors. Freezing water may cause cracking.


    Does it freeze?
    A: Yes. Our products are not freeze-proof and if any water is allowed to sit in the tops and freeze, it will cause cracking and then will break. Winter storage is always recommended to prevent any damages. You can get full year use out of your birdbath if you use a birdbath heater for the colder months.

    Are the glazes safe and free of toxins?
    A: Yes, all of our glazes are safe for the birds. All of our glazes are free of lead and cadmium.

    Will the handpainting fade?
    A: Unfortunately yes, but this takes many, many years. Like most things left outdoors, they will eventually fade. If you have one of our Handpainted birdbath sets and see your piece fading, you can find Outdoor Paint and touch it up for a personal touch. 

    Is it really made with local Ohio clay?
    A: Yes it really is made right here in Roseville, Ohio! We have a local clay mine, which is dug weekly and hauled down the road a few miles to our factory in Roseville. Everything is made on site here, from dirt to finished product and then shipped directly to you. We make about half of our glazes ourselves and source the others from our friends at Mayco in Columbus, OH!

    My top broke on my birdbath, is there anything I can do?
    A: Sadly no, once they are broken there is not much you can do. Most glues are not safe for the wildlife that will be enjoying your birdbath. If you only have hairline cracks in your top and want to prevent further damage - we recommend using FlexSeal Clear. Once the sealant has cured for 24hrs, it is safe for the birds.

    How do I clean my birdbath?
    A: Use a wildlife friendly cleaner to scrub any dirt and gunk away. Some of our staff use a bucket of hot water and some Comet to clean theirs. Just mix comet with the water and scrub until clean. Rinse thoroughly Do not let the mixture soak in the bath.

    How do I clean the Birdbath Fillers?
    A: You can clean the fillers the same way as you clean the birdbath tops. Use a wildlife friendly cleaner and a good scrub brush to scrub the gunk off the fillers and then rinse them off really well. Don't let the fillers sit in the solution for too long either.

    My item arrived broken, now what do I do?
    A: If any of your items arrive broken, don't sweat it! Take a picture of the damaged item(s) and send it to us in an email with your name & address and we will send out a replacement at no cost to you.

    Cardinal Birdbath

    Love the birdbath. It arrived will packed, nothing broken. It looks great in the small space I have to place it. It was worth the wait.

    This birdbath is beautiful. The top is nice and deep for the larger birds and it locks .
