Pot Saucer

Need plants that are "bird hardy," to be near a bird bath, SoCal full sun, short, perennial, pretty?

We want to have a couple of low planters on a patio near a glass door, and want to put pot saucers in them with plants surrounding the saucers. One saucer for a bird bath, one for seed, so the kitties can bird watch thru the glass door. There's just no place for a pedestal bath or a hanging feeder. I would like the plants to hold up to birds landing on them, and the water splashing. Maybe succulents or ... ?

I had some mockingbirds nest in a passiflora vine just on the other side of a glass door from my cats, so some birds are braver than others and certainly sparrows, finches and pigeons are big pigs who will be quickly inured to any indoor cat. It's not too likely you will get any mourning doves, starlings or ravens with a set up like you are describing.

For most of the year you can get hummingbirds in Southern California, and my cats like to watch them. Get a bamboo pole with a plant hanger and set it firmly in one of your low planters?

I don't think the bird activity will harm most plants, and I don't think they'd be too interested in the plants themselves. Me, I'd plant annuals. They are less trouble in pots, and if a squabble kills or damages a plant, no big deal. Birds are either looking for something dense to hide in, or an open launch space just in case they need to flee. Just keep in mind that the spilled seeds will root and you will need to pull those out of the pots they fall in, and the seeds that fall outside of the pots will be a bit of a bother to clean up.
