Hello,
Photographing White Birds is Simple Because Pigeon is standing behind of water and than after you image collect from camera.

I'm not sure I understand your comment. Photographing any object that has a tonal value higher than the surrounding values (or much lower for that matter) is always a challenge. Modern cameras are becoming better at handling these differences, but a skilled photographer doesn't rely on the whims of the automatic camera adjustments and learns how to quickly dial in the adjustments!

The other challenge is a narrow range of tonal values, such as a white bird on a white sandy beach! Auto camera settings are likely to record the whole image as grey - a skilled photographer should know that a +EV adjustment is necessary to record the values closer to white!

I also like to capturing birds. They looks so cute while capturing it. White birds like pigeon but it is not easy to capture it because you should manage the right angle to take it.

Agreed! In fact, it is best to get on eye-level with any animal you are photographing - I end up lying on the ground a lot! :P

Great..The most important thing to keep in mind – the speed of focus acquisition both on camera and on lenses are far more important than DSLR’s frames per second.

Agreed! You can post "fix" exposure issues, but it's tough (or impossible!) to "repair" blurred or out of focus images!
