Acknowledgement of Country
Birds Queensland acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet and conduct our activities. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future. We will value and care for the country which we now enjoy through the custodianship and nurturing of Australia’s First Peoples over tens of millennia.
Who are we?
Our members come from many backgrounds and have widely differing levels of knowledge about birds. They share an interest in and enjoyment of birds and birding in a wide variety of activities that are described in detail in the About Birds Queensland section of this website.
Membership applications are welcome from anyone who is interested in the study and conservation of the birds of Queensland.
Our outings and camps provide great social opportunities, as well as a chance to share some birding skills, knowledge and experiences, while the monthly meetings deliver papers on current research and other relevant topics, as well a chance to chat over supper.
Special Interest Groups
Queensland Wader Study Group (QWSG) is a special interest group within Birds Queensland, formed to further research on both migratory and resident waders (shorebirds) in Queensland, and to work for their conservation.
Queensland Bird Research
and Banding Group
The Queensland Bird Research and Banding Group is a special interest group of Birds Queensland (Queensland Ornithological Society Inc). The objective of the group is to further our knowledge of Queensland’s birds through citizen science focusing on bird banding and other research techniques.
Learn About Birds
