TV Satellite Dish Bird Bath

Tell us the story of your project.: 

I've been thinking about this for a while, what to do with a old TV Satellite dish, just orient it 90 degrees or so and it would make a great Bird bath, and using the arm and LNB housing it could have a shower attachment. The water is circulating so there shouldn't be any issues with mosquito's. It sits on a 5 gallon bucket as a reservoir. I did it for the Instrucables Water contest. Satellite Bird / Bath Pond is the name.

Is the Instructables title.

What to do with a disused TV Satellite dish.
Aha! moment: 
Finding out that water in a large dish has a mind of its own, I got soaked a couple of time while trying to level it.
Uh-oh! moment: 
Trying to get the dish balanced on the 5 gallon bucket and realizing that it had to be on a level surface.

This is really cool! Do you have a link to the Instructable so I can look at the build?

Fun project John, do the birds like it?
