    You have to manage exposure.

    If you have a large amount of sky in the shot it will cause your meter to under-expose the bird.

    If you manage the exposure manually, you can add more exposure to compensate for the meter reading.

    You only need to increase the ISO if your shutter speed is too slow.

    Practice on anything with a bright background ... eventually you will figure out how much exposure compensation is required before you get into a situation where you need the shot to come out.

    You also might want to try out your Auto Exposure Bracketing feature (most DSLR's have it).

    You can also change your metering modes: center weighted or partial metering or spot metering .
