RUSSELL KINGSTON (QLD)
Our November speaker is well known to finch
aviculturists as an author and passionate finch keeper.
Russell Kingston was a founding member of QFS, a past
President, long-time committee member and is now our Patron.
Russell is committed to both aviculture and bird
conservation and has studied finches all over the world. In
this presentation he will cover a recent visit to the “World
Show” – the biggest bird show in the world with thousands of
entries and then discuss some visits to aviaries in Italy.
Russell will also give a brief segment on some new
nutritional products that are now available. See you there!
QFS Finch Conservation Program
DO YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
SILVERBILLS AND JAVAN MUNIAS NOW AVAILABLE
We have previously outlined the QFS Finch Conservation Program. We now have young pairs of African Silverbills AND Javan Munias available to go to volunteer breeders who wish to participate in the Conservation Program. Provided you are willing to meet the conditions of the program you will be given two pairs of Silverbills or two pairs of Javan munias. All birds are DNA sexed. Silverbills are available at $35 a pair to cover the cost of DNA sexing. The Javan Munias are initially at no cost. They are available to QFS members ANYWHERE in Australia. Both species are easy to breed and no trouble in an aviary. If you are interested please contact the relevant coordinator for African Silverbills, Gary Fitt. email@example.com or 07 32026779, for Javan Munias, Chris Leeper. firstname.lastname@example.org

and tried hard to win in the raffle.
