The Queensland Finch Society is based in Brisbane, Australia but has members worldwide who subscribe to receive the monthly magazine "Finch News" and participate in other Society activities. Members in south-east Queensland are encouraged to attend general meetings which are normally held on the first Friday of every month at 8pm (doors open 7pm) at Morningside School of Arts Hall, Cnr Wynnum & Thynne Roads, Morningside, Brisbane. They feature a Guest Speaker, a Sales Table stocked with seed and a wide range of breeding aids, birds for sale and the club Library. Non-members and guests are also encouraged to attend. QFS also stages out of Brisbane meetings, aviary visits, bird sales, auctions, bird shows and other events at various times during the year.
Chris Trigger, or Trig , has been a member of QFS for the past three years and has served as the youngest member on the QFS committee for the past two years. Like many, Trig had an interest in finches during his adolescence and returned to finch keeping later on in life. In his presentation, Trig will talk briefly about his experiences in keeping finches and present a compilation of some of the best ideas and innovations that he has learned, seen or observed along the way; many of these having been contributed through the Facebook community. The talk will include opportunities for other ideas and comments to come from the floor. This should make for an informative and interesting talk for finch keepers of all levels of experience!
In addition we will commence with a short 10 minute presentation from Nic Susnjara on Greening your aviaries .

QFS Out of Brisbane Meetings
November 19 2011 saw an excellent turnout of finch enthusiasts for the QFS meeting in Tamworth. Members and friends from as far as Sydney heard three excellent talks, enjoyed a finch ID competition
and tried hard to win in the raffle.

QFS meeting in your region just contact the President and put
