Preview of English translation:

5. He then makes two bending-limbs in the wings, for there are two bending-limbs in a bird’s wings. In one-third (of each wing he makes them), for the bending-limbs are in one-third of the bird’s wings;—in the inner third, for the bending-limbs are in the inner third of a bird’s wings. He expands (each of these limbs) in front by just four finger-breadths, and contracts it behind by four finger-breadths; he thus expands it by just as much as he contracts it; and thus, indeed, he neither exceeds (its size), nor does he make it too small.
