Achla Pond Decorations helps create a more natural and colorful "habitat" around your pond, water garden, or stream. Place them around your yard or garden to add accent or draw interest. Use the larger bird statues as a decoy to discourage larger birds from visiting your stocked pond or stream while encouraging smaller birds to roost nearby. Some statues are handpainted in realistic colors while other statues have a verdi finish. All Achla Statues are made of cast aluminum and will last many seasons.The larger bird statues also include anchoring pins to securely mount the statue.
