If your primary interest is birds, I'd recommend the 400 f/5.6L. Although it doesn't have IS, for birds in flight, you don't really need IS.

I disagree strongly with this.  You need to learn when it helps, and when it gets in the way.  In another response, I posted a couple of cliff swallows in flight, IS in panning mode really helped.

It is a good lens, though.
