As far as EV goes + Ev for like snow until blinkies then back off a bit? I assumed spot but wasn't sure. Thanks for tips.

That should work, but be aware that there is quite a range of brightnesses even in the white areas. And typically those bird might be against a very dark background in the woods or deep water or something. It's a bit of an art.

The other method I didn't mention is to buy a camera specifically for those birds. A D850 or D500 would be sweet. There are others too.  But technique and luck can go a long way.
