Don,
I tried your settings and still got burn out. My problem is this. I am shooting for a movie (ie, it's going to be integrated with film). The producer insists on a shutter speed of 1/60 for everything. Needless to say, lots of light comes in. I have put in a 3 stop ND filter and set the gain to +3dB. Still not good enough. So I took your settings to the extreme to lighten shadows, thus allowing for a small aperture (f/16 to f/22) for light birds in bright sun. Here are the settings, if you are interested. It works against burnout, but, boy is everything flat. Lo and behold, the movie guys like that!!

Steve,
Glad you figured out what worked for you, and especially making the film people happy, which in your case is important. I'm sure you will be interested in what your stuff will look like after it's transferred to film, assuming that is the next step. I, and I'm assuming others, would be interested in seeing a short clip with this preset and the difficult lighting conditions you were confronted with. Again, glad to hear your going forward instead of backwards....
