The largest muscles in the bird are the muscles that control the wings. They are called the pectorals, or the breast muscles, and make up about 15 - 25% of a bird’s full body weight. They make the birds’ wing stroke very powerful so that they can fly, and provide most of the movements the bird needs for its down stroke. The muscle below the pectorals is the supracoracoideus. It raises the wing when a bird is flying. The supracoracoideus and the pectorals together make up about 25 – 35% of the bird's full body weight.

The wings are leaves. Am I the only one that sees this?
"I am now in possession of the fairy remains which I plan to return to the barrow shortly. I will then reseal the barrow so that the hollow hill and its contents are not rediscovered.

My big problem with the wings is the muscles that would be required to operate them.
