Build a bird bath and bird house from your old satellite dish.

Obsolete satellite discs that are your property* can only be used.

Minimum material is required to build a bird bath that doubles as a bird house.


Discarded satellite dish
Piece of thin plywood
Length of chain
Some fixtures

Satellite solar heating Satellite solar heater   Position the finished birds house with enclosed bird bath in an area that is not exposed to high winds. Excessive movement of bird houses make birds nervous and reluctant to shelter inside the bird house or use the bird bath.

To build the bird house with a bird bath an obsolete satellite dish
will be the base of the bird house and also serve as a birds bath.

Solar heater for a bird house
Remove all fittings from the discarded dish. When working on the satellite dish ( bird house base ) prevent damaging the protective surface of the dish.

Satellite dishes are often protected by an excellent weather proof coating that prevents rust if undamaged.

Solar heated bird house Bird house with solar heating Drill a hole into the center of the obsolete dish. This will form the bird house base. The hole must be positioned accurately to ensure that the bird house base sits horizontal to the ground. If the measurement does not allow the base to sit level then the bird bath water will not drain from the bird bath when the bird bath / bird house requires cleaning.

Fit a stainless steel bolt, nut, rubber washers and chain supports into the hole. The rubber washers ensure a tight seal that prevents water from leaking out of the bath

Before assembling of the bird house base commences the perimeter of the dish can be used to mark out the bird house roof shape as a substitute for the second satellite dish.
Cut out the desired bird roof shape and sand the rough edges back to a smooth surface.

Drill a hole into the center of the bird house roof and slide the roof onto the support chain.

Position the bird house roof at a suitable height and then apply a clear silicon to hold the bird house roof in place.

If solid supports are preferred then the chain can be repositioned onto the bird house / / bird bath roof.

Detachable bird house walls create a cool ventilated home and bird bath in the hot weather. Cleaning and maintenance of the bird house is also simplified.

A piece of ply wood molded to the bird house base circumference will make an ideal bird house wall and stop the cold weather from entering the bird house. Select plywood that is free from preservatives. This protects birds that have a tendency to chew on their bird house

 Mark a spot on the bird house base where the wall is to commence. Measure around the perimeter of the dish up to the position where you require the bird house wall to finish. Transfer this length on to the material for the bird house wall then mark the height that is suited for your bird onto the of the plywood wall. Cut out the bird house wall to these measurements and dress the edges of the plywood with medium grade sandpaper. Shape the bird house wall to suit the circumference of the dish. This can be achieved by using a flexible plywood ( approx. 3 ply ) or molding a heavier plywood with the use of water & pressure.

When the desired shape is obtained dress the bird house wall with a fine sand paper
and select a suitable finish that complements your bird house appearance.

Fasten with counter sunk fittings to create a smooth, safe surface that will not injure the visiting birds.

This type of arrangement for a bird house with a built in bird bath makes cleaning of the bird house very easy. Simply tilt the bird house to allow the bird seed and bird bath water to drain away from the bird house base. Then rinse the bird bath surface and refresh the bird house seed and bird bath water.
