Open the image and select the Clone Stamp Tool. This is the 15th tool from the top of the palette in Elements 10.

Use the square brackets on your keyboard to increase or decrease the size of the tool's circle. You'll need quite a small circle for this particular task.

Place the circle over a dark area of the bird, for example, just to the right of the eye. Hold down the alt key (on a Mac) or the option key on a PC, and click to select that dark area.

Move the Clone Stamp Tool's circle over the bird's eye and start clicking. Each click will paint a dark area over the white of the bird's eye.

I had a quick go with your photo. I presume this is the effect you are looking for. As you will see, the same technique can be used to remove the couple of bright spots towards the left side of the photo.

Hope that helps.
