4 November 2022 AGM

“Nutritional Needs for Softbills – Keeping the Diversity of foods manageable”

Guest: Ian Brown
Venue: Hall, corner of Wynnum & Thynne Rds, Morningside.
Date: 4 November 2022
Time: 6:30pm for 7:30pm start.
Or Zoom: link to be emailed to QFS members.

Ian Brown is a highly experienced and successful aviculturist and our QFS President. For many years he has maintained a diverse bird collection comprising finches, parrots, lorikeets, and softbills, but over the last few years he has dramatically expanded his softbill collection as the new Queensland regulations came in. A key point is that Ian is successful with all his species including amazing species like Wompoo Pigeons, Regent Bowerbirds and numerous honeyeaters.

In this hands on talk/ workshop, Ian will focus on the challenge of meeting the diverse nutritional needs of his collection, while keeping the time required for the whole operation manageable. He will go through the many food types and recipes he uses in his collection and will prepare several of the recipes live. So, a great talk to attend if you can, but also available on Zoom.

As this meeting will also be our AGM, there will not be a short talk.
