I can't tell what settings you were using, but I suspect a wide open aperture combined with a shutter speed that was as fast as you could go - with a little underexposing as well for more speed. It looks like your focus is good and that you captured the moment, but even with underexposing for a faster speed (assuming this) the shutter has just not been quick enough.
If in this case again I would say flash or a very high ISO are your only real options and of the two I would reach for the flash myself - rather than high noise from a higher ISO.

Its a tricky thing but birds in flight need a lot of speed - its no trick that many bird in flight shots are taken in very bright weather - its because dimmer weather just does not give the light needed for those faster speeds.
