That is a very compassionate action 3 x 3. If you want the bath to be just for the birds then make sure that it is raised off of the ground, otherwise other animals will also take the food, unless that is your intention and you put out enough for all of them. Some types of food are supposed to be particularly good for birds, some not bread for example apparently does not really help them that much. Also, be aware that some birds can be bullies in the garden, such as pigeons, which can take over and take food for themselves leaving smaller birds with nothing. In order to prevent this you may need to consider alternative means, such as bird seed in sealed containers or feeders which only the smaller birds can feed from
