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.
Meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday each month,
7:15pm for 7:30pm start,
at the Conference Room, PCYC,
Park Road, East Nowra.

Members will again be saddened at the passing of Phil Irving. Our condolences go to his wife Margaret and Family. Colin Emery one of our older members also passed away last week. Our deepest sympathies go to his family.
Many thanks go to Allen Leishman for his interesting talk on conservation and banding of birds.
One of our junior members, Joja Handebo kindly donated $50 to the club from sale of her Budgies. Thankyou Jorja.
As we have no December meeting Aviculture Accessories are willing to bring small orders down for folk to our Christmas Party so no one will be short of seed over the break.
We will be sending out a December book as there will be photos etc. from the Christmas Party. All the guest speakers for the new year will be in the book.
I hope all of you have had a great breeding season.
To all of you, who are not well, we wish you a speedy recovery.
