"SUPPORT YOUR NATIONAL VOICE FOR FINCHES & SOFTBILLS"

News

News and events run through the NFSA are publicised through regular newsletters (see Publications page) which include details of activities that members from across Australia have been involved in. We have an annual committee meeting and often are involved with the organisation of small specialist meetings that focus on specific topics of relevance to our members.

NFSA NATIONAL FINCH CENSUS 2014

Our latest News is about the outcomes of the third NFSA FINCH AND SOFTBILL CENSUS. Read all about it in the report – 3rd National Finch Census 2014

Overall the 410 respondents held 23,754 native finches, 17,262 exotic finches and 603 softbills of many types – a massive 41,619 birds in total. These numbers covered 56 different exotic species, 34 species, sub-species and mutation categories of native finches and an amazing 50 or so species of softbills among the 603 birds.

Publications

Members of the NSFA are involved in a range of publications. We develop consensus positions based on input from members on issues relevant to the keeping and breeding of finches and softbills in Australia. These are communicated by written submissions, articles or testimony to relevant authorities. Members are also involved in the production of articles for publication in magazines, or websites produced by other relevant organisations.

Here we archive NFSA Newsletters and other publications of interest.
