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.
For our final meeting of the year, we once again feature Cheryl Mares to continue her photographic adventure with finch aviculture. This time Cheryl will focus on the Star Finch (Neochmia ruficauda), a species she has worked with in both Red-headed and Yellow-headed form. The presentation will feature some wonderful photography, but also many behavioural insights derived from Cheryl s close observation of how the birds interact, breed and rear their young. This will be a great meeting and will include our Christmas celebration, so if you re able make sure you are there.

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
