No one ever shows the wing folding , because that s the tricky part , some tips
in the demo never show every single simple control , for the neck and head you showed every single control every single rotation and so on.

Regarding the rig it s quite simple due to not having feathers and of course the texture stretches like crazy

For more realistic wing animation/setup, you should study a bird's wing anatomy. The way you rigged the wing for the seagull isn't following actual anatomy.
