Composition would be perfect on this, but unfortunately the lighting has gone against you with large parts of the main subject lacking any detail.
Did you have spot metering on as this may well have helped lift out the dark area had you metered on the underside
Well you did comment in the forums.. I voted this down because I feel it needs far more detail in the bird itself. I can see no detail at all on most of the underside of the bird. Also the part that is visible isn't sharp. It seems to me that you probably set the camera for evaluative metering (or similar), when you probably should have used spot (open to correction on that one). Doing this would expose the bird properly but might blow out the sky though, but then this is a difficult shot to get right. maybe someone else can advise you on how to avoid that problem.
Not much more i can add to the above other than take on board the advise and try again.
One of the great benefits with digital is that it costs you nothing to rattle off some shots with different settings.
Practice practice practice and you will get there.
