    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!

    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 :D.
