Re: Affordable setup for beginning bird photography?

I believe the best dedicated system for birding is the Nikon 1 with a 300mm and TC1.4. For a given bird image size of say 5mm on the sensor (whether Nikon 1 or D800, the principle remains the same, with the same lens and same subject, the image size of the bird on the sensor will be the same size), the Nikon 1 will get more decent pixels onto that 5mm than virtually any other camera. Google moon shots taken with the Nikon 1 (or Pentax Q), and you will see far better pics than with the heavyweights.
