The wings on the winged character are an example of magic. The wings, as realistically depicted as they are, cannot be seen as an example of "realism". 

People don't really have wings. 

The people in the story offer many examples of realism and realistic behavior.

This isn't the clearest discussion post. What is it precisely you are asking for? Are you looking for examples of reality and then examples of magical realism? You could argue that the angel figure is clearly an example of magical realism, but the way in which the villagers react to him is an example of reality, in particular the way in which Father Gonzalo shows his ignorance and arrogance.
