When a Red-crowned crane walks, a black feathers is seen near the tail.
These black feathers are not tail feathers.
These are secondary feathers.
When closing the wing, these go out of the gap of secondary-coverts and scapulars.
Such features were reproduced by animations.

In order to express the bend of flight feathers, two bones were used per flight feather.
Hence the number of bones became many(bones count:205).
Please be careful, When your environment is limited about the number of bones.

In-place animations are contained Animations/InPlaece folder.
