auto expose for highlights?

Hi, I am trying to find the perfect settings for action shots of birds in flight.  I have been using auto Iso so the I don't have to manually adjust the settings when I have to quickly swing the camera into an area requiring a different exposure.  The one problem I have been having is that I am getting shots that are either over exposed or under exposed.  At first I thought this was because the camera did not have time to adjust the exposure when I am moving the camera quickly.  However what surprised me is that if I just view the image through the viewfinder without taking pictures the exposure can be far to light or dark which makes me question the auto ISO on my camera..

What auto exposure mode would you use in this case?  I am using the a7iii.

Many thanks,

Malcolm
