Black-winged stilt investigating something:

Laughing Kookaburra:

Pied oystercatcher:

Australian magpies:

Two crows chasing a sea eagle

Starlings (Vintage Style)

Olympus EM1 II. IRIX 150MM 2.8. 1/1600. ISO 2000. F4

Real snow covered background.

How achieved:

1. Shooting above birds pointed at snow covered ground

2. Metered for snow covered ground which will under expose bird.

3. In Post agressively raised shadows, reduced highlights, brightened overall image, and added vintage filter (brownish).

..... purposely overexposed/ blew out the background in post which turns it completely white.
