Anotjher suggestion for you, especially if you're on a budget: The Tamron 200 400 f/5.6. Built like a tank with plenty of reach, it's alot of bang for the buck and it's a very capable birding lens. It's a bit on the heavy side but that doesn't deter you from getting some excellent razor sharp critter shots without getting too close to scare them off:

Though not quite as good as the G lenses or the Tamron lens that replaced it, it's still some pretty damned good glass that can be had for around $200.
