Birds Queensland’s activities include conservation and research-oriented projects, educational activities, and activities which provide opportunities to meet with other people interested in birds and birding and to share experiences.

Current conservation activities are described in detail elsewhere, and provide opportunities for people to be involved in various activities directed towards monitoring and conservation of birds and understanding their habitat and other needs.

Birds Queensland provides displays at a range of conservation and related events, and members have opportunities to discuss issues relating to birds with visitors, and to promote Birds Queensland’s conservation aims.

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.

Campouts and Day Walks are intended to be enjoyable occasions for all BQ members. Belonging to BQ is a voluntary leisure activity where participants can observe birds to whatever degree of expertise they wish, relax and interact with like-minded fellow birdwatchers. Thank you to our members for contributing positively to this ethos.

If you are inexperienced at bird identification then you might be interested in our monthly Easy-Start walks, which are more focussed on learning how to identify local birds.
