An albino laughing gull with the sun behind it offers a rare glimpse in to the structure of a bird’s wing. The short bone coming from the bird’s body is analogous to our upper arm bone. At the elbow (downward bend) it joins the two lower arm bones. The wrist and hand bones are modified to form the outermost section of the limb. The main flight feathers are attached to the bird’s “hand.”
