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.
Speakers: Peter James, Chris Leeper &
Gary Fitt (QLD)
For the first meeting of 2020 we will have a series of short talks providing practical tips for finch aviculture. We will have three presenters.
First up, Peter James presenting a popular talk and demonstration on applying leg rings to finches. It may seem easy to old timers, but lots of newer members need some help.
Second up will be Chris Leeper with a short presentation on hand rearing finches.
Third up Gary Fitt will give some instruction on novel nesting receptacles you might try in your aviary.
Finally we will have a Q&A session where anyone can pose a question to a panel of experts. So bring your questions and your problems. It should be a great night.

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
