Preventing Birds from Flying into Home Windows

Bird watchers who wish to prevent birds from flying into their windows now have options right here at Zona Fountains. Millions of birds become injured and/or die each year from window collisions. We all look for ways to prevent that dreaded ‘thud’ — and we are now carrying WindowAlert® Window Decals to assist Southern Arizona’s many bird lovers!

Window Alert Zona Fountains Birds

“There are also a host of methods that don’t work, despite conventional wisdom or the claims of individuals or commercial interests. Don’t waste time or money on old-fashioned measures such as windsocks or chimes, dangling pie pans, or strings of feathers. Recent research [1] has found that, despite occasional anecdotal success, such suggestions simply don’t work reliably.” (wingscapes.com)

Four effective ways to protect birds against window collisions:
1. Apply window decals specifically designed to prevent bird run-ins.
2. If you have the space, move bird-attracting items (e.g., feeders, birdbaths, fountains) away from the windows and house.
3. If space is limited, move bird-attracting items (e.g., feeders, birdbaths, fountains) closer to the windows and house. 

4. Apply a screen, net or awning to the windows. 

 

Take a look at our newest feeders, birdbaths, and fountains to attract more friendly fliers to your neighborhood!

GOING GREEN WITH SOLAR POWER

2018 has brought about new changes at Zona Fountains.  We began late last year by installing solar panels on our roof.  Additionally, we have updated our in-house production facilities.  This will accommodate a larger selection of Zona Fountains manufactured items for our loyal customer base.  And, most recently, we have started remodeling the indoor showroom to house more southwestern style art and pottery.

Beyond these upgrades our staff has installed risers to showcase our growing selection of plant stands and southwestern pottery. Customers familiar with our lot can view the new pottery patio near the south side of our main entrance (previously designated as our bird bath patio).

Winterizing Your Outdoor Fountain

One of the most commonly recommended methods for winterizing a garden fountain is disassembling and storing it away from the elements during winter.  Thankfully, in Tucson, these precautions are unnecessary seeing as our number of freezing days is few to none.  Our recommendation follows standard draining procedures. This will ensure no damage occurs that could affect the structural integrity of the fountain.

The largest threats to your fountain posed by freezing water are: 1. damage to the pump system, 2. crackling of the exterior finish, and  3. fractures or ruptures that compromise the structure of the fountain. Drying your fountain a few days prior to any severe changes in weather will help diminish any likelihood of damage.

Frozen fountainCustomers preparing for a freeze should plan well in advance, reserving extra time for your fountain to completely dry out.  The exterior surface will retain moisture longer during the cold months. Be sure to allow 2-3 days for the surface to completely dry out. Many fountain companies recommend adding absorbent materials to each tier. Towels or used t-shirts work well in this application. Following this step helps ensure no water condenses or pools while the fountain is dry.

Fountain Covers

In addition to draining your garden fountain, our fountain covers help prevent freezing damage during Tucson’s winter. Our fountain covers are placed over the top of the fountain body and finally secured using a drawstring strap built into the fabric. The cover should be left in place until the weather has returned to above freezing temperatures or until you are ready to start running the fountain.

Birding in your backyard

Tucson is such a good home to birds that we support the most comprehensive urban bird count in the world. This urban diversity makes any local residence a premier location for a birding sanctuary. Tucson’s bird diversity comes about because of our unique range of elevations and mild seasons. There are the Sky Island mountains that link the Rockies to Mexico’s Sierra Madre. We also have influences from Sonoran, Mojave, and Chihuahuan deserts, migratory flyways, and tropical areas south of the border.

Tucson is such a good home to birds that we support the most comprehensive urban bird count in the world.

At Zona Fountains we strive to bring environmentally safe products that you can count on not to disturb your most important focal point, your fountain. This season we’ve brought in one-of-a-kind products not available from most other Tucson retailers. Please browse our updated Garden Decor section where you can find many of our new bird feeders.

Protecting your fountain

Here at Zona Fountains, we believe in protecting and preserving your fountain. With our years of experience, we’ve found the best way to keep your fountain looking new is to purchase a fountain cover to preserve your water feature.

Some customers wonder why we recommend fountain covers, as they are typically reserved for harsher winter climates. We have found that here in Arizona it is just as important to protect your fountain from the harsh summer sun, as well as during monsoon season. Both times during the year temperatures swing from day to night, which can cause an unwanted algal bloom. During monsoon season, large amounts of rain water can overfill and even knock over your fountain. Many of these yearly events warrant the use of fountain covers here in Arizona as well!

Some of our customers who are seasonal residents of Arizona find fountain covers essential to protecting their purchase during the months they are not here to care for it. Some customers have also found using the covers aids in resisting pesky mosquitos from laying eggs and multiplying in the stagnant water.

Remember, if you are leaving town to always drain your fountain

At Zona Fountains we carry Henri Fountain Covers made from durable, reinforced polyethylene, which is weather resistant and u.v. stabilized. Henri’s covers have nylon drawstrings integrated into the fabric to ensure a snug fit over your fountains. Stop by today and see how you can benefit from purchasing a fountain cover. Our experienced staff members look forward to seeing you!
