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.
Title: "A tour through the birds of the Walsrode Bird Park, Germany"
Speaker: Sheena De Jager Miles (Brisbane, Qld)
Last year our Editor, Sheena, spent an extended period in Europe and found time to visit a few bird collections. Among them was the famed World Bird Park (Weltvogelpark) at Walsrode in Germany. This is the largest bird park in the world in terms of number of species and area. Only Jurong Bird Park in Singapore has more individual birds. Many of us would love to visit, but luckily Sheena is a keen photographer and she has captured images of many of the birds and of the layout of Walsrode. In this presentation Sheena will give her impression of the park, discuss the birds and some of the history to whet our appetites. An interesting meeting for sure.
Our meeting will commence with a Short Talk from Alan Hazleton on My Different Aviaries . This will be an introduction prior to an Aviary visit to Alan s place on April 7.

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
