Noel Ganely - PSOA Pioneer and Life Member

There is a well known proverb that states, from little acorns, big trees grow! And none could be more factual than the growth of the Parrot Society of Australia Inc. We have grown from a small club with twenty or so members who answered the call from John Barber and Noel Ganley for interested Aviculturists in forming an incorporated bird club. I guess it would be fair to say, that they would never have dreamt that a small advertisement in the local paper would one day culminate in it becoming one of the largest and Premier Parrot Societies in Australia, with members from all over the world. Now at the grand age of 83, Noel can look back and rightly say with pride, I helped start what has become an Avicultural journey for so many bird lovers throughout the world.
