President's Letter

Dear Beak n Wings members, volunteers, donors, and supporters:

I would like to welcome you to Beak n Wings. This has been a long road for the organization. Beak n Wings turned 24 years old January 1, 2023! We could not have done it without the help of our members, volunteers, donors and supporters. Thank you all very much.

Beak n Wings is currently lining up more events for 2023. We are looking to set up at other venues so that the public can ask questions so that they can care for their own birds better and maybe see a parrot in real life.

Beak n Wings holds social events at our facility in Lenexa. Members can earn Birdie Bucks by volunteering at events. You can cash them in on some bird adoptions, toys, and other items.

We are always looking for volunteers to help out at our facility. We offer opportunities such as cleaning cages, floors and light dusting from all the bird dander, and caring for the birds. Bird care involves handling, feeding, and watering. We are also looking for tradesmen such as a plumber, electrician, and builder etc. to help with repair and changes within the facility. If you are able to help us, please email us at

Beak n Wings operates on donations from the public, our fundraising events, adoptions of birds, and the sale of small items from our facility. Please note that Beak n Wings is NOT a pet store. We do not sell bird food; we have a small selection of toys for sale, and used cages.

Since 2003 Beak n Wings has taken in over 2200 birds. We make sure they are on healthy diets, take most of them from a conure to a macaw to the vet (smaller birds are taken to the vet if needed) before the bird is adopted we rehabilitate those in need. All birds are observed for 30 days before they are put up for adoption.

We offer our Basic Bird Care 101 class, which is required for adoption. We are also holding our Advanced Bird Care Class. We groom birds on site, we can show you how to handle or hold your bird. We are currently lining up live speakers for each month in 2023. We hope you can attend some of them.

Donations: We are often asked if we take cages and other bird related items at the facility. Yes, we do. We take new or used toys, new or slightly used cages with little to no rust.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, I will be updating it as needed.
