I purchased a 500mm f/4G VR for birding about two months ago and have taken about 500 shots with it using a D3-00 and TC-14EII on a tripod. Here's a small sample of the results: http://public.fotki.com/jnuss/personal/local-birds/page4.html .
Most of the earlier other shots in the folder were taken with a Bigma on a D50.

I've been very happy with the results, however, I don't see myself lugging this lens
on any long bird hikes. The lens/camera/tripod/ballhead combo is pretty heavy
(> 15 lbs). If you're undecided, try renting the lens for a weekend.
