With the warmer weather we’ve been having, I noticed something about the ice that had build up on the bird bath. The warmed concrete had melted the ice touching it, and a gap had formed.
I took advantage of that.
Instead of cutting a bowl into the ice for water, I was able to chop away the build up of ice, without damaging the bird bath itself.
Once the edges were clear, the middle part came out in very satisfying chunks!
I cleared enough that the brick could be used by the smaller birds to reach the water.
Another sign of spring on the way!
