When I got the gardening bug a few years ago, I went overboard buying things I ended up never using. I use these plant pot saucers (or whatever you call them) as the big birds dominate the bird bath and water thingy - so the little birds love these which I place away from the ones the large birds use.
I fill half a dozen assorted buckets every evening with tap water and leave them sitting around for a couple of days before using the water in watering cans. All of the birds this last hot few days are drinking and sticking their heads under the water to get cool. It's great fun to watch.
