These are the first result of what was originally an effort to prevent bees from drowning in a birdbath, which they were doing frequently. I placed some rocks of various thicknesses and slopes in the center so the bees would have easier access to water that the precipitous glazed sides of the birdbath, and also have something to grab if they did fall in. They drink about half the water out of the birdbath every day, so the water level drops. So far the rocks have worked very well.
