Hi Scott, the comp is very good and it's a fine shot of a bird I've yet to get in my own PF. Looking at the EXIF data I see the shutter speed looks fine, the general rule is that the shutter speed needs to equal the focal length of the lens so that's bang on. (you can get away with less if the bird isn't moving about too much). The problem I feel is you are using plus exposure comp not only here but also on your last two shots. For birds and animals with white you need to use minus exp comp to prevent burn out especially when you have very bright light as you have here. Take a couple of test shots to see the difference when you dial in maybe 1 stop maybe even more with a situation like this. Hope you take this as help as I don't wish to offend you or anyone else on the site and you did ask for suggestions.
