Great shots.
Are you using flash with birds? There's a lot of light on the underside of the bird so that's why I'm asking.

Greg, I think what you see is the snow on the ground acting as a reflector. I've got the same results when photograping aircraft when there is clean white snow on the ground.

Dane/Dawg: Magnifico!
