Artist Reference

I found the motherlode of wing references! This page has hundreds of amputated waterfowl wings and they photograph them from the front /and/ the back. Its very interesting to see not only the different structures of the different species' wings, but the color patterns of the feathers themselves. Definitely useful for those of you who, like me, find wings to be difficult.

Here is the main page of wing photos and they have different categories of bird wings, not just waterfowl:
