* You might think that, since the animal villagers can send you handwritten letters, this trope would be in full force in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing''--but not quite. In ''New Leaf'', Pete the postman...uh, postpelican mentions how sloppy the animals' handwriting is, and notes that most of them don't have opposable thumbs.

When avian characters hand you things most of them make do with their wings (or flippers in penguins' case) just like horses and ungulates work with hooves.

* Bat wings are the closest to this trope in reality; they're essentially elongated fingers with membrane between them.

The {{Trope Namer}}s are all the [[CivilizedAnimal otherwise non-anthro]] [[FunnyAnimal cartoon birds who can]] [[FeatherFingers hold things in their primary wing feathers]], such as [[{{Peanuts}} Woodstock]], all the FunnyAnimal birds with arms like DonaldDuck and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, and all the [[PettingZooPerson anthro birds]] like [[VideoGame/StarFox Falco Lombardi]] who can pilot a fighter. The primary wing feathers ''sort of'' [[RuleOfPerception look like fingers]], so naturally in cartoons they act like fingers. Not a heavily modified and specialized extension of their body covering (meaning that this makes as much sense as PrehensileHair). This version tends to go hand-in-hand (sorry) with AcrophobicBird.

*Played straight with the birds in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'', however Catherine Aura's CharacterBlog states that this isn't "really" the case, and is just an artistic decision by Holbrook.

** The Harpy Monet is seen reading a newspaper by holding it between her fingers. However, this can be justified because she's an artificial harpy made by Law (he swapped her limbs for wings and talons), whose power to mix and match follow logical sense ''very'' losely.
