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.

Date: September 12, 2014
Title:  "Java Sparrows well worth the effort "
Speakers: Tus van Genderen (QLD)

Tus has lived and bred birds all over the world, starting with budgies and progressing to bantams, pheasants, Guinea fowl, quails, many of the smaller parrots and of course finches. He has a fascination for the genus Lonchura (Mannikins/Munias/Nuns), including the big,  bold and distinctively coloured Java Sparrow. This species is now endangered in its native Indonesia and is unfortunately kept by too few finch breeders. Tus will discuss the attributes of the Java, its relationships and avicultural needs of this interesting species. Hopefully some will be stimulated to try them too.

QFS Finch Conservation Program

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. gary.fitt@bigpond.com or 07 32026779, for Javan Munias, Chris Leeper. chrisleeper@hotmail.com
