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.
Danny Brown has been an avid keeper of birds and reptiles since the age of nine. He is well qualified from a biological viewpoint having completed a BSc (Hons) and a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and has worked for some years as a small animal veterinarian with a special interest in avian and reptile medicine.
Danny maintains a large collection of birds which includes finches, parrots and poultry but with a rapidly growing component of softbills. He has written several books on birdkeeping and reptiles and most recently has been instrumental in lobbying government to extend the list of softbills which can be kept in Queensland. This has been a long campaign and as a result Danny is keen to encourage others to try softbills in their collections. His presentation will demonstrate why softbills can bring a new dimension to aviculture and highlight the challenges along the way.
This will be an excellent meeting which also includes our 2019 AGM.

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.

QFS meeting in your region just contact the President and put
your case forward!
