The bird is underexposed because of the brighter sky background. Set your camera for spot metering and bracketed shots 1 stop apart. You will quickly find a good exposure this way.
If you can focus accurately, you don't need f11 depth of field for a "bird on a wire". This will boost your shutter speed and/or drop your iso.

If you are interested in seeing a little more of it for ID purposes you might try uping the exposure in PS. For example:- exposure +4.81, offset -0.0059, gamma correction 1.4 may give you a place to start playing with it, if it was shot in raw you likely have more room than that to play with.
