Hi Eric,

On the E-510, I found the best way to overcome overexposure on bright harsh light was to adjust the exp comp by -.03 or-.07. This is especially true for birds with white feathers.

Eric, You seem to have plenty of answers to your question from more informed people than me.
Just one thing that I've had luck with is going just to the center focus spot with spot focussing. I've found it easier to get the enter spot on the bird quicker without the two side spots trying to give different information. The compensation is true also, for Ziggy's reasons and if the sky behind is bright.
