What is the word for bird bath?
That's an interesting question! Guess for:
Urdu: حمام پرندگان - Hammaam-e-parindagaan
Urdu and Hindi: panchhiyoN/pakheruu'oN kii nahaane ki jagah
Hindi: panchhii/pakheruu snaan-sthaan
Let's see what others say!
pakshii gusl-khana, maybe?
pakshii snaanghar (पक्षी स्नानघर)
I wasn't aware of this thing before so I haven't ever heard any expression for it so let me set my imagination free:
پرندہ سقایہ parandah-siqaayah
پنچھی نہان paNchhii-nahaan
Somehow I lean much more towards pakshii snaanghar for Hindi than Hammaam-e-parindagaan for Urdu. The latter rings a bell about steamed chicken .
