Answer:
The wing of a bird and the wing of a bat are analogous organs because, both of them perform the same function but are different structurally.
The wing of a bird is in the form of feathery cover, while the wing of the bat is extensions of skin folds. Moreover the internal skeletal structure of both the bird wing and bat wing differs greatly.
