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.
Do you have challenging questions about why your finches don t breed, or what do I do when a bird looks fluffy? How do I design the most functional aviary and what features must it have. Our June meeting will be an opportunity for you to answer such questions and many others as we assemble an expert panel of four leading finch breeders who bring decades of experience. They will answer your questions and share some of their adventures with finches as well. So come prepared with some questions.
In addition we will commence with a short 10 minute presentation from Ian Brown on the appropriate use of nets to catch your birds. A practical session on dos and don ts when using a net. Overall a great meeting for everyone.

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
your case forward!
