The rémiges are large the feathers (warp ends) of the wings of the Oiseau X. They are directed towards the outside and the back of the wing, being recovered to form an almost continuous plan. Three levels of cover (primary, secondary and tertiary) mask spaces between the stems of the rémiges and the fleshy part of the wing.
The primary rémiges are fixed on the hand (phalange S and Métacarpe S) forming the point of the wing or whip. The majority of the birds has 11 of them (12 at the Grèbe S and the ashy Héron, 9-10 at the Passereau X). The first (most external) is often more reduced, even rudimentary at the Hirondelle S and the Pinson S (3 mm). The bastard rémiges are the 3 primary educations fitting on the inch, constituting the Alula .
Les rémiges secondary is fixed on the front armlever (external edge of the Cubitus). Their number vary from five at some hummingbirds to 12 at the Pigeon S and up to 30 at the Pétrel S. They are smaller feathers and more flexible than the primaires.
Les rémiges tertiary or scapulars is fixed on a membrane which extends from the arm (Humérus) to the side. In fact smaller feathers, with their cover, recover the shoulders and part of the back.
