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.
For our final meeting of the year, we once again feature Cheryl Mares to continue her photographic adventure with birds.
This time Cheryl will present an overview of a trip to the Pantanal in Brazil, an amazing wetland - the largest in the world, which harbours a diverse fauna of birds and wildlife.
Cheryl will discuss the challenges of photography in the Pantanal environment and provide details of many of the bird species and also encounters with numerous jaguars and caimans.
This will be an interesting and informative presentation and will be preceded by a Mini Bird Auction of 30 lots of non-registered birds. So bring your money with you!
This will be a great meeting and will include our Christmas celebration. Please join us for the feastive season.

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.
If you would like to suggest a
QFS meeting in your region just contact the President and put
your case forward!
