In unchanging light I'll shoot manual exposure. If the light isn't constant then I'll use evaluative with about 2/3 to 3/2 stops EC. I tend to keep ISO up around 800.

Same here, though often have the ISO on auto.

Are you photographing a crow or an egret? There is no specific answer for your question An egret in bright light will require as much as minus two full stops of exposure compensation on a sunny day in order to get feather detail. there is more to it then whether your subject flies from shade to sun. I generally prefer evaluative metering when shooting birds but my thumb is always on the wheel to adjust quickly for overall light and color of bird. ISO is determined by what shutter speed I need to freeze the wings and this has to do with lighting in general. I like a shutter speed of 1/1250 for most birds and find that puts me at ISO 800 allot of the time.
