I don't know anything for XSI, but this has been helpful for me (it's a Maya tutorial, but it might give you some ideas) --

1. get a feather from a friend with birds as pets, or from the local pet shop, just to actually feel it's structure. remember, the staff of a feather is hollow.
2. to see some nice angels wings, atleast, [like i did], rent the movie "Dogma" directed by Kevin Smith [Clerks, etc..] some very nice wing unfolding scenes via alan rickman and ben afflecks' characters at the beginning and end of the movie. plus, it's d**n funny inbetween.
3. i found a bunch of animal films on the internet, although make sure you're avoiding porn sites like i found some sickos had up for when i was looking for baboons. just do a search to see the real thing. it matters.
hope this helps.
