The Eastside Audubon Society will take flight with a benefit bird seed sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 21 at FirstFruits, located at 6848 180th Ave. N.E. in Redmond.

For those seeking to avoid the lines, seed may be purchased in advance and online at www.eastsideaudubon.org. During this event and through online orders, 5 percent of all sales of select seed will be donated to Eastside Audubon.

“We greatly appreciate this support from FirstFruits. This is a great event that allows you to make a difference for your backyard birds during the winter season, while supporting an organization that is looking out for all our local feathered friends,” says Tereza Marks, executive director.
