If the sky is the brightest element in the scene, I would spot meter the sky to set an exposure as I described before.  You can't spot meter the bird, obviously, before it arrives, and if you do, you will blow the sky again.  Underexposing the bird is ok because those shadows can be lifted.  Once you blow the sky, it is gone.
