How about another option altogether

Not sure what level of 'birding' images you are wanting. Since weight is a big issue have you considered some of the bridge long zoomers out there?
I have just picked up a Canon SX50 for a hiking camera and it has a 50x lens and shoots Raw.
There is a panasonic with 30x zoom at a constant 2.8...
I am not a birder, and have no idea the level of detail you are after... But if weight is an issue.
