Whoa

For the longest time I’d been trying to think of a way that bird anthros with normal hands could make sense when it came to opening and closing and the closest I’d come is Wings-07’s design where the opening and closing of the hands folds/unfolds the wings

While looking at my friend’s anthro species I realised that actually, a species like that COULD make sense. It could simply have a row of muscles along the back of the arm that expanded and contracted to push out/pull in the feathers, independent of what the hands were doing. They’d have to be strong probably but I think that might work.
