This is my first decent bird in flight photo. Any comments on how to get nice photos of these critters in flight is greatly appreciated. I used a 70-300mm VR lense, a D80, Dynamic Focus Area, and AF-A.

Nice capture!
You might try underexposing white birds a little. You can try spot metering too. Actually might be a young heron?
