What settings are you using on the camera?
What camera body lens are you shooting?

I'm still a huge novice when it comes to the features and settings on my camera. I am just using the sport mode most of the time, so that I get as many shots as possible. The camera that I am using is Cannon T3i with a Cannon 55-250 lens.

You might try changing the white balance setting to match whatever your lighting conditions are instead of usint the "auto" white balance setting.
Also try using the AV setting (on the dial on top of the body)+. This allows you use a higher iso and larger aperature to get higher shutter speeds and thats one of the keys to waterfowl photography.

How do you change white setting and determine light? What should the iso be set at as well? Do you know of any other references besides the owners manual?

The white balance settings on the canon's should be to the right of the screen and when you pull the menu up, it will say "flourecent", "sunshine", "overcast", etc. Those may not be the exact terms, but something like that. Whenever you are shooting, make sure you change the white balance to reflect that. Your ISO is determined by the amount of light and shutter speed. Higher ISO's are needed at lower lighting situations. You normally want to shoot with the lowest ISO your camera will allow depending on the lighting. The higher the ISO, the "grainier" the picture.

I would go out and purchase a "T3i for dummies", they are very helpful. Not only that, but just taking the time to mess with the camera to get comfortable with everything. Use the manual (M) setting on the camera and you can really fine-tune what you what there. Try to avoid automatic settings, they can only do so much. Good luck! :beer:
