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.
Title: "Adventures with birds from Canberra aviaries to Antarctic Islands"
Speakers: Julian Teh (ACT)
Our July speaker developed a keen interest in birds and aviculture at an early age and when he last spoke to QFS in 2013, he had an aviary and neat collection in Canberra. Julian quickly developed a profile due to his enthusiasm and connection to many bird networks. Since then Julian has progressed to University and expanded his birding horizons to bird photographer and bird art. He is an outstanding photographer and painter and has been travelling to many interesting birding spots. His presentation to QFS will span his start with aviculture through to his latest adventure on Antarctic islands.
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
