This question already has an answer here:

I’m looking for a live-action TV show I saw in the USA on Sundays back in the 80's. It might have been on PBS, so possibly it was British.

It had a (CG?) metal pterodactyl or dragon-looking thing, kinda like Lazerbeak (one of the cassette tapes that comes out of Soundwave in Transformers).

    You might want to clarify the Soundwave is a Transformers reference - I had to look it up. – iandotkelly Mar 12 '14 at 15:40

Like a few other story identification questions on here (e.g. this one and this one), this show could be Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future (1987-88).

One of the “Bio-Dreads” (monstrous creations that hunt down human survivors of the war between men and machines) on the show was a sort of metal pterodactyl thing called Soaron, and was portrayed using CGI.

The fearsome (sort of) Soaron

Sounds to me like you might be thinking of the Terrahawk, one of the ships from Gerry Anderson's Terrahawks.
