Wings are too static during the run, I thought it was a hard cloth covering like you see on old medieval paintings! I recommend making the wings undulate a bit or twitch some while the run happens.
The transition between run and fly is also way too sudden, one frame of them ducking down before taking off could help alleviate that.

During the walk cycle, the wings could be a bit longer and hang bit lower.  Also during the walk cycle, the shoulders and neck seem a bit small.
The head seems to shrink during the run and fly.
And a transition frame or two would help as well as MysteryMeat mentioned.

The prone pose of the wing is messed up. It's pretty much upside down.

Yes, when it's laying against the flank.
It flips the right way around once the animation starts.

Good stuff! That windup frame helps immensely!
