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.
Our October speaker has been an outstanding bird breeder in the NSW town of Taree for many years and has periods out of birds while rearing a family, but he is now back into his collection and breeding with renewed vigour. For anyone who frequents Facebook, Craig Greenaway will be well known and the images of his aviary complexes in place or under construction fill many with awe. Last year he initiated the popular Spring into Finches and Softbills event held at his home and in this presentation he will outline the many aspects of his journey with birds. Not to be missed.
The short talk for the meeting will be given by Peter McDonald who will provide an overview of grasses for your finches. Overall this will be a great meeting.

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!
