I may be using it wrong too! What I mean is that these birds are even less defined than the first set, some are almost translucent. I tried doing that with lower shutter speed but they were just blobs. I may still be on the hunt for what I want...

here is my stab at your first image -

Darks got cooler, birds got cooler and sharper and added some punch to them to bring them forward
