Title: "From Finches to Flying Foxes"

Speakers: Dr Les Hall (QLD)

Dr Les Hall retired to Maleny in 2001 after 26 years at the University of Queensland where he lectured in human and veterinary anatomy.  Before that he worked for CSIRO Division of Wildlife Research.   He has had a long time interest in birds, bats and wildlife in general which has led him to conduct field work over many parts of Australia and south east Asia. Les did all the black and white illustrations in Forshaw and Cooper's Parrots of the World and recently was a major contributor to The Birds of Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve.  He is also co-author of the only book ever written solely about these animals. Les s talk will show how his early avicultural interests with finches led him to studying flying-foxes. So if you have any questions or stories about flying-foxes, bring them along to the talk.

QFS Finch Conservation Program


We have previously outlined the QFS Finch Conservation Program. We now have young pairs of Javan Munias and Black headed Yellow Siskins available to go to volunteer breeders who wish to participate in the Conservation Program and breed these birds on behalf of QFS. Provided you are willing to meet the conditions of the program you can obtain two pairs of Javan Munias or Yellow Siskins. Where necessary the birds are DNA sexed. Both species are available at $35 a pair as a contribution to the operation of the program, but the birds remain the property of QFS. Birds 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 each species: Javan Munias - Chris Leeper, chrisleeper@hotmail.com , Yellow Siskins Ron Porter, ronjude@bigpond.net.au
