Some say, the only bird baths that make any common sense to use, are ground bird baths. Since you only find water on the ground. While there is some truth to that statement, it is not entirely true. Since birds will use and have been seen using all three kinds of bird baths.(Hanging, Standing, Ground). Also in nature when it rains, you can see birds perch up in the trees or purposely perched on pole wires getting a shower. Then after it has rained, you will see birds beginning to preening themselves. Or they will fly to a tree and perch on a branch while letting the water drip on themselves from the leaves and begin to preen themselves. Hummingbirds love to fly thru in and out the trees after a rain storm, letting water droplets land on them from the leaves. To mimic rain droplets for you hummingbirds, a mister is great idea to use.
So whether the water is on the ground or up high, the birds will take advantage with any one of the bird baths you choose to use (Hanging, Standing, Ground).
