Indigo Street Pottery a Site for Desert Rivers Audubon Tour de Bird

5

Our site is called The Reich-Newsome Habitat. We are located at 6931 E. Indigo St, Mesa Az 85207  http://www.indigostreetpottery.com/Site/contact.html

Desert Rivers Audubon describes our yard: Over the last 10 years this 1.3 acre wildscape has been transformed from barren landscape to a lush desert wildlife oasis with native trees and shrubs.

Photos below, clockwise from top left: A few of the birds we commonly see at Indigo Street Pottery  (AKA Reich/Newsome Habitat for the Audubon event) include the Gilded Flicker, Verdin, Gambel’s Quail and Lesser Goldfinch.

Indigo Street Pottery will be one of a number of backyard bird habitat sites selected for the upcoming Desert Rivers Audubon Tour de Bird event. Desert Rivers Audubon is a chapter of the National Audubon Society. http://www.desertriversaudubon.org 

http://www.desertriversaudubon.org/programs-events.html#directLink

This fundraiser helps support the Desert Rivers Audubon conservation efforts and their Backyard Bird Habitat program. The tour is self-guided, with two Audubon volunteers at each site all day to assist visitors. The event is Saturday, November  7, 2015, from 9am to 4pm. Bring your binoculars!

From their website:

The annual birds and gardens event, Tour de Bird, is Saturday November 7th. Local gardens in the East Valley will be on display with a variety of plants to suit all gardeners. Ranging from one with 150 native trees to others making the best use of a small space. There are gardens with water features and a chance to see beautifully landscaped gardens for our Arizona birdlife!

From a Desert Rivers Audubon press release for the event:

Desert Rivers Audubon is a local chapter of the National Audubon Society and is, therefore, first and foremost a group of people who love birds. Studying birds, however, should lead to a more acute realization of birds as just one aspect of the natural world and foster an appreciation of the whole system, the habitat in which those birds, and we humans, survive.


The Desert Rivers Habitat Recognition Program grew out of our wish to acknowledge those people who were willing to help our native wildlife prosper by making a commitment to turn some part of our landscape into a natural habitat. The criteria are simple, do you plant native plants? Do you provide water and shelter for insects, birds and animals? Do you keep your watering requirements to a minimum? Simple to say, but not always simple to implement.


Our website, www.desertriversaudubon.org , has an “Audubon at Home” page where you can read more about the requirements that lead to a habitat being recognized as wildlife friendly. There you can also find sources of help if you want to turn your own backyard space into a wildlife friendly area.


Balancing the needs of the wildlife and the aesthetic feelings of gardeners can be challenging so we are therefore tremendously pleased to recognize the Indigo Pottery habitat and include them in our November 9th Tour de Bird. This is an event designed to educate people on making their landscapes wildlife friendly by sending them on a self guided tour of several backyards and public habitats to show them different styles and approaches.


We look forward to the tour and hope your habitat will prove an inspiration so that others will learn how to share our desert home with our native flora and fauna.

We started these winter vegetable seedlings a few weeks ago up on a table to keep them safe from sowbugs, small beetles, lizards and other soil-dwelling creatures that love to devour tender seedlings. The seedling table is inside our garden enclosure, which, being covered on the top and all sides with 1/2” chicken wire, protects them from birds (especially cure-billed thrashers!) that love to dig around, uproot and eat seedlings. Our seedlings include snow peas, pak choy, chard, kale and arugula. We’ll get them in the ground soon though, so they can get established before the customary first frost in late November.

Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich are both working on paintings in the studio amidst new clay work. The studio has become very dense with so much going on! Below are photos of two new paintings, one by each of us.
