Message:Sounds like these are the "elbow" wing joints. These are not covered by feathers and especially obvious when the bird is wet from a bath. It's nothing you need worry about. If Hudson lets you handle his wings, you can try feeling how the bones and muscles are arranged - they are actually rather similar to our arms. Shoulder, humerus bone, elbow, radius + ulna, wrist, a first finger where the alula feathers attach, and two fused fingers for the wing tip.
