Sandhill Crane.017-001

The front of the wing tucks under a flap of breast feathers while the scapular feathers cover the top edge. The primary feathers are hidden by the folded wing. The bustle of feathers at the back connect to the base of the wing (not tail). Note that they often have two sections, a broad rear bustle and a forward pile of more neatly aligned row at the back of the wing.
