These two photos are posted to illustrate the difficulty in photographing birds against a bright background. The first was taken with an exposure compensation of + 1.33; even so, the bird's under-exposed, and detail is poor. Without the compensation, it would have bee a silhouette.
The second picture was taken with an exposure compensation of + 2. Most of the bird is ok, but the backround, that is the sky, is flared.
There may be a solution to this problem, but if ther is, I don't know what it is (other than moving to change the background, of course; but then there's a good chance that you'll have no bird to photograph...)
