How can I make this better in camera?

I don't feel like a beginner but I often have this kind of big bird/eagle ish and it's so dark. Is there a way to make it better in camera. As I remember I used spot standard metering here. Had some other dark birds where I used multi and they were as dark. I'm aware that had I been higher than the bird I'd have sun on it's back and it would have shown the back nicely

Thanks for any input. First converted raw "clean" in LR (exif tells) and 2nd with some tweaks. Neither as good as I saw it irl
