Hawaii in need of Bird Baths

My Buddhist perspective;- I'd like to see shopping centres installed cooled bird baths in cool, shaded outdoor places for the migratory and displaced birds & small wildlife. Since most of the Developed world has shuffled in asphalt acreage for natural yardage,  birds are unable to find fresh water sources. The obvious downfall being that someone puts poison in the water to kill the birds. It's a no-win situation for the Birds.
I was just sitting at the coffee gallery table and a desperate gecko ran up to my iced coffee mug 3x with my hand on the cup. The gecko licked the water droplets off the side. I set an ice cube out on the table where the gecko's purple younger lapped up some cool water droplets to beat the Hawaiian heat.
