How to use shutter speed?

I am using a canon eos350d on sport mode, when taking photos of birds their wings are all blured. I am new to photography and so far I have only used auto settings, can you please help. Thanks Elaine

  Even the Sport mode may not give motion stopping shutter speeds if the lighting isn't bright and/or you have a relatively slow f/4-5.6 lens. Sport mode also uses Auto ISO which will not set ISO higher than 400. Switch to Tv where you can select both faster shutter speed and higher ISO.
