I am trying to create a real-time animation of a bird that has wings with two joints whose angles change dynamicly (in other words, the flapping motion is not pre-calculated). Does anyone know of any simple physics model that can be used to create believable movement for the bird based on the way the wings flap?

This is for a nine-week project that I am doing with Java3D, JMF and some other technologies that I am sure are of interest to the people here. Any simplified bird flight physics models are welcome, even if they do not deal with jointed wings.

Not much, and probably not useful.....:

Thanks, the articles are nice to have as inspiration now that I am going to have to design my own physics model.
