Desert Rivers Audubon 2013 Tour de Bird at Indigo Street Pottery

We had such a good time being a site on the recent Desert Rivers Audubon 2013 Tour de Bird Backyard Habitat Home Tour. Audubon birding expert Fran Thurber generously volunteered all day leading visitors around our yard to spot and identify birds. A short list of birds seen that weekend includes American Kestrel, Verdin, Abert’s Towee, White-crowned Sparrow, Curved Bill Thrasher, Turkey Vulture, Gila Woodpecker, Gilded Flicker, Costa’s and Anna’s Hummingbirds, House Sparrow, Mourning Dove, Gambel’s Quail, and House Finch.


Our goal was to educate visitors about what native plants they could include in their landscape to provided food and shelter for native birds. We have no bird feeders on our property, relying instead on flowers (nectar), berries, and seeds produced by native plants.

With the mild, cooling weather our garden has been plagued lately by sowbugs (AKA “roly-polies”). They live in the soil and have been devouring the tender, emerging winter season seedlings. Sowbugs are voracious little critters, distinctive in that they are the only crustaceans who live their entire life on land. Sowbugs thrive in moist, rich soil. We’ve tried to control them with physical barriers around each seedling (i.e. with sectioned paper towel tubes) but with mixed success.
