Aviculture involves the keeping and breeding of birds. Our club fosters and promotes the culture that forms around this. Aviculture is generally focused on not only the raising and breeding of birds, but also on preserving avian habitat. Members are encouraged to develop this awareness through the sharing of knowledge and opinions, guest speakers and articles in our monthly newsletters.

at the Conference Room, PCYC,

Presidents Report January 2020
On behalf of the Executive and myself, I would like to wish all a safe and prosperous 2020.
Thank You to Nick and his daughter Matilda for giving their presentation at the last Meeting.
I would like to give a shout out to all of you who may have lost homes, birds, stock and pets during the bushfires or have been affected by the smoke and ash. It has been a dreadful few weeks for so many of you. We just want you to know you have been in our thoughts and prayers.
Our Meetings and Annual Bird Sale will be held at the PCYC again this year.
Next month Maddy Fish will be speaking on Finches. She is the President of the Finch Society of Australia. We should be in for a treat.
We will be organising a trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park a little later on this year. It will be a day trip this time.
To all of you who are not feeling well, we hope you all have a speedy recovery.
Kind Regards Ray
