After looking at many different birdbaths we chose this one because of it's height, weight and attractiveness. The verdi green color looks good in the yard. The bath bowl is deep and the birdbath stands about 2" higher than most. We have many squirrels jumping onto the birdbath and it has enough weight to withstand their gymnastics and remain stable. The only possible negative is the "frog" figure that sits on the rim - it is much larger than it looks in the picture. The size is a bit much for an accent figure. However, the larger-than-life frog doesn't take away from the birdbath's durability and attractiveness.
