Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens or Sigma 100-500mm or??

I am the proud new owner of a T2i and I am as dumb as a rock.

I want to do nature photography, birds in flight, birds on a twig, you get the idea. My head is filled with fun facts but very little practical experience outside of the P&S world. I was considering the Sigma 100-500mm IS lens but now I've discovered the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens for the same money! L lens quality is something even I have heard about. So the question is: If you were asked to choose a lens for less than a thousand bucks (new or used) that could get you that classic BIF shot what would it be?
