ok yes I bought one for my bird bath. Yes I love it. Yes the birds like it but some of them are scare of the noice or this. So yes I bought a second one to add features and projects to my pond. Yes they wonderful cause they solar and you can place them anywhere u have sun. I love these solar panels they make things look expensive. The pond looks expensive w these. The ideas for what else you can use besides pond or bird bath are a ton.. so I need to buy me more..
