Notes on your surroundings

Birdseed--If you ordered wild birdseed mix or sunflower seeds from Sea & Sage Audubon, it's pickup time.

The seed will be distributed in the parking lot next to the Audubon House on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and Oct. 29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To get to the Audubon House, take the San Diego Freeway to the Jamboree Road exit and head south. Turn left at Michelson Drive, then make a right at the second signal onto Irvine Ranch Water District property. Follow the paved road and "Duck Club" signs to the house.
