I thought this beautiful photo could benefit from some TLC, I hope you don't mind. Here is what I did.

PS CS2

Selected the bird and tree limb. Inverted the selection so that I only had the background selected. Copied it as a new layer. I then applied the Dust and scratches filter to the background to remove the noise and then merged the two layers back together. Hope you like it.
