Abstract

A bird drinking device (1) has a grid-like drinking bowl (2) which is provided on its external circumference with a separate bird perch (9) and is divided into individual floor troughs. A water refilling device (19) ensures that the drinking bowl (2) is kept constantly filled with water, the container (21) being sealed before mounting with a sealing cap (22), which forms the narrow inlet (32) to the drinking bowl (2). <IMAGE>

Description

The invention relates to a bird bath with a drinker basin that is bounded by an outer edge.

Such bird baths are usually massive, on the floor Heavy Kera to be placed or anchored in the ground mic bodies or the like, the installation of which is difficult makes, mostly by the drinking bowl outgoing moisture the presence of numerous Vermin results.

The invention has for its object a bird to create potions that are easily under under different conditions can be set up.

The drinking bowl is one to solve this task central trunnion arranged. This makes it possible the drinking bowl at a distance from the floor on one with the Trunnion interacting column, but also hanging  or to be placed directly on the floor, depending on the how the conditions are in the area in which the Bird bath should be set up.

Regardless of this, it is also particularly in front partially conceivable that in plan view inside the inlet one on the outer edge of the drinking bowl the water level in the drinking bowl is appealing device, which is connected to the inlet Has water storage so that the drinking bowl is independent depending on the installation location and depending on the water removal by birds and evaporation without special Action is constantly replenished automatically and only the water reservoir to be refilled every now and then needs. The arrangement can be such that the water level in the drinking bowl is constantly constant is held.

In any case, it has proven advantageous if not just the outside edge as a seat for birds trained, so appropriate to their claw feet is fitting, but if instead or especially to in addition to this in the area of the outer edge of the drinker basin at least over part of its circumference a perch is continuously provided for birds, which is preferably at the level of the outer edge. Thereby the birds can fly particularly well and initially sit on the perch, from which you then without having to fly up again to the outer edge of the drinker basin can reach. Furthermore, the distance the perch is chosen from the outside edge of the drinking bowl that larger birds, such as blackbirds, the drinking bowl reach with the beak also from the perch, while smaller birds do this by sitting on the outer edge  can do from. Another advantage is that the perch can also be used for that Drinking bowls distributed in several around its central axis Lacing, tension rods or the like. hang up for what the Outside edge of the drinking bowl can be formed.

It has proven beneficial if the water memory in the manner of a mushroom-shaped elevation telbar at the top of the drinking bowl in the form of a completely closed container is arranged, the only in the area of its underside at least one inlet opening is open, this Zu barrel opening at the predetermined water level Mirror, i.e. slightly below the top of the Outside edge of the drinking bowl is so that the water from the water reservoir to the drinker by the shortest route basin reaches and by the weight of the water also stores a focus stabilization of the drink basin results. In the case of training the drinking bowl for the arrangement in a recessed corner, in wel For example, the drinking bowl in plan view has approximately a quarter-circular basic shape, can the what, for example, to be placed on the trunnion memory also outside the center of the drinker basin, for example in the area of the corner of the Drinking basin can be provided.

To be possible with a low total filling volume of the drinking bowl Swimming pools or bathing areas for birds that are appropriate to the species to create, the bottom of the drinking bowl is useful in individual, separated from each other, preferably after rise on all sides from a deepest midrange troughs divided, which to the outer edge on its Rise in height while moving to neighboring ones  Trough to a lesser, at least partially below rise above the water level and in the neighboring troughs in the vertical cut concave curved ridges. After beard hollows are so with regard to water exchange beautifully connected and still clearly against each other other delimited. The individual troughs are useful almost a circular section around a vertical Central axis of the drinking bowl arranged such that for example, a kind of rosette shape is formed.

These and other features of preferred training gene of the invention also go from the description and the drawings, the individual features depending because alone or in groups of Un ter combinations in one embodiment of the invention and can be realized in other areas. A Embodiment of the invention is in the drawings shown and is explained in more detail below. In the drawings show:

Figure 1 is a top view of a drinking bowl according to the invention.

FIG. 2 shows the drinking bowl according to FIG. 1, partly in vertical section;

Fig. 3 shows the drinking bowl of Figure 2 with the refill in an exploded view .

Fig. 4 is a plan view of a part of the refill of FIG. 3.

As shown in FIGS . 1 to 4, a bird bath 1 according to the invention has a flat bowl-shaped drinking bowl 2 which is axially symmetrical to its vertical center axis 3 . The drinking bowl 2 , which has zones of different depths, is divided into a plurality of trough-shaped segments 5 distributed around the central axis 3 , which decrease in width almost to the center axis 3 and from this inner area at an acute angle to the outside to the outer edge 6 of the drinking bowl 2 are widened. Although an uneven number of segments 5 and a different design of different segments is also conceivable, an even number of identical segments is provided in the illustrated embodiment, namely six segments. Each segment 5 has a section 7 of the outer rim of 6 , which is offset from the adjacent sections 7 in that it is curved relative to the adjacent sections about an axis which is spaced from the associated axis of the adjacent segments. In the illustrated embodiment, all the axes of curvature of the sections 7 are provided on a partial circle around the central axis 3 , such that these axes of curvature between the central axis 3 and the outer edge 6 , preferably approximately in the center thereof, in the central or axial plane of the each associated segment 5 are. The sections 7 are not, as also conceivable, concave, but less than a quarter-circle convex and merge into each other at the outer ends of ridges 8 , which the Segmen te 5 substantially below the predetermined What serstands mirror in axial planes of the central axis 3 separate from each other.

At a short distance outside the outer edge 6 and at the same height as this, an essentially continuous continuous perch 9 is provided over the circumference of the drinking bowl 2 , which is formed by individual curved sections 10 , which are arranged in the manner described with reference to sections 7 and can be formed from. These sections 10 appropriately have a constant distance from the associated section 7 and are free between their ends over the entire circumference, such that they only in the area of their axial planes of the central axis 3 at mutually closing ends via short radial webs 11 or the like Links are connected to the outer edge 6 of the drinking bowl 2 . The perch 9 is expediently formed in one piece with the rest of the drinking bowl 2 , for example as an injection-molded plastic body with an essentially constant wall thickness. The perch 9 is therefore like the outer edge 2 in cross section in wesent union U-shaped with downward legs, in the case of the outer edge 6 of the inner U-leg directed obliquely inward to the outer edge 6 flat rising radially outermost region of the bottom 12th of the drinking bowl 2 forms. In the area of the radial webs 11 , openings 13 can be provided, for example, in the outer edge 6 for attaching fastening or support members for the drinking bowl 2 .

The bottom 12 of the drinking bowl 2 falls in cross-section in accordance with FIG. 2 in a concave, shell-like manner from the outer edge 6 to a central zone of greatest depth and then rises again to a central support pin 14 , but only to a height which is lower than the height des Außenran des 6 is and is appropriately slightly below the before certain water level. The bottom 12 each of the individual segment 5 also rises flat on both sides to the ridges 8 , resulting in a particularly favorable trough shape. Each ridge sheath 8 runs in a side view from the top of the outer rim of the 6 concavely curved to the outer circumference of the trunnion 14 . Due to the design described, the drinking bowl 2 on the underside has a plurality of bulging segments projecting downwards over the underside of the outer edge 6 and the perch 9 , which it also allows, the drinking bowl 2 directly on the floor, on a table or the like . set up in a stable position or anchor it by pressing it into the ground. Due to the described training, the drinking bowl 2 has an extremely high strength even with relatively thin-walled training.

The standing in the central axis 3 , approximately cylindri cal trunnion 14 is cup sleeve or cap-like so formed in one piece with the rest of the drinking bowl 2 that it is closed at the top of the bottom 12 both in the jacket and on its upper end face and to be at NEM the bottom of the bottom 12 lying end is open to the full inside width. The jacket of the trunnion 14 is flared downward on the outer circumference as well as on the inner circumference at a few degrees, so that it forms an insertion opening 15 accessible from below. The lower end of the trunnion 14 protrudes downward beyond the adjoining zones of the base 12 and extends with a lower end face into a plane which is approximately in the plane of the deepest zones of the underside of the base 12 . In the insertion opening 15 , the upper, appropriately conically formed end of a central support column 16 can be inserted, or the like by a solid rod, a tubular section made of plastic. can be formed and expediently has a tip 17 at the lower end in the manner of an earth anchor for easy pressing into the ground. The upper right, above the top of the outer edge 6 end of the support pin 14 is closed with a bulging bulge 18 outwards.

The upper end of the support pin 14 is provided for detachably receiving a water refill device 19 , which essentially consists of a water reservoir 20 forming a container 21 and a pin 14 connecting the support or closure cap 22 to it. The thin-walled, a storage space 23 enclosing container 21 , whose radial extent over the central axis 3 is smaller than the radial distance of the deepest zone of the bottom 12 from the central axis 3 , has a substantially flat lower end wall 24 , one adjoining this, in essential cylindrical Man tel 25 and in turn an adjoining this upper end wall 26 , which is domed up spherical dome. The container 21 is expediently made in one piece, for example as a blown hollow body, but can also have a separate base attached to the container body. In the central axis 3 , the container 2 has on its underside a circular filling opening 27 which is limited by a wall 24 drawn down from the end wall, that is to say it is limited only by the annular plug flange 28 projecting downwards from the end wall 24 . The approximately cylindrical or to its upper, hemispherical ge closed end at a few angular degrees tapered ver young cap 22 is adapted to the filling opening 27 or the plug-in flange 28 so that it is tightly fitting with its outer circumference, but can be easily released . At its lower end, the ge compared to the plug-in flange 28 has a significantly higher and, compared to the inner height of the container 21, shorter closure cap 22, a projecting over its outer circumference and continuously continuous ring flange 29 , the lower end of the plug-in flange 28 at the sen upper ring shoulder inserted closure cap 22 abuts. In the jacket 30 of the cap 22 are four evenly distributed over the circumference of the longitudinal slots 31 which extend to the lower, open end of the cap 22 , but only over part of the height thereof, in such a way that the upper ends of the longitudinal slots 31 at one the sealing cap in the storage space 23 . The inner cross section of the closure cap 22 is fitted in such a way to the outer cross section of the upper end of the support pin 14 on, that when placed onto the support pin 14 Ver closure cap 22 whose inner circumferential surface is substantially close to the outer surface of the support pin 14 at is. The longitudinal slots 31 are thus at composite refill on the outside via an adjoining the annular flange 29 part of their height through the plug-in flange 28 and on the inside of the closure cap 22 over their entire height or length by the support pin 14 . As a result, only their lower ends remain open to the inside of the drinking bowl 2 , that is to say that these lower ends of the longitudinal slots 31 form the inlet 32 , via which the otherwise tightly closed storage space is connected to the drinking bowl. Depending on how deep the self-locking surrounding the trunnion 14 closure cap 22 is placed on the trunnion 14 , the individual openings of the inlet 32 have a smaller or greater distance from the adjoining the trunnion 14 Zen of the bottom 12 , so that thereby and by twisting the cap 22 and thus the openings of the inlet 32 with respect to the ridges 8 of the inlet cross section can be changed. As soon as the water level in the drinking bowl 2 drops below the level of the openings 32 of the inlet 32 lying in a common horizontal plane, water flows out of the, for example about half a liter, water reservoir 2 through the longitudinal slots 31 with simultaneous ventilation of the storage space 23 through the longitudinal slots 31 into the drinking bowl 2 until the water level in the drinking bowl 2 has reached the level of the inlet 32 again. The water level mirror 33 kept constant within narrow limits in this way can be provided, for example, approximately at the level of the connection of the base 12 on the outer circumference of the support pin 14 at a height which is approximately one third of the greatest depth of the drinking basin below from the top of whose outer edge is 6 . However, the water level can also be raised against this by setting the closure cap 22 higher relative to the support pin 14 . Since the cap is inserted before the container 21 is placed in its filling opening 27 and then only the narrow inlet 32 is open, the filled container 21 can be conveniently placed on the drinking bowl 2 with practically no leakage losses.
