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: "My Journey and Love of Finches, 4 Generations Strong"
Speaker: Maddy Fish (NSW)
At the Finches 17 Convention, Maddy Fish was one of the sponsored juniors and revealed herself to be a super keen and dedicated finch breeder. This month she will be a speaker at QFS and will outline her passion for finches which follows a strong family tradition. Maddy and her father have a great backyard collection and continue to improve what they have and how they do things. Along the way, Maddy will likely discuss how she also recently became President of the Finch Society of Australia! This is a meeting not to be missed, as it will also feature a short talk from Ian Brown with some pointers on keeping the Scarlet Honeyeater, a species we hope to see more commonly held by aviculturists. Come along for 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.
If you would like to suggest a
QFS meeting in your region just contact the President and put
your case forward!
