Nikon equal to Canon 1DmkIV ?

I have 2 Nikon cameras, the Nikon D50 (very nice) the the D60 (nice but sort of a toy). My favorite subject is animals, and I have to have a quick camera. I recently came across this thread in A Black Horse forum:

Dick Reed is a long time Canon user, and has posted on the Canon forums here at dpreview.com. I am very impressed both with his pictures, and the specs of this camera.

I realize this is a professional model and way out of my price range, though worth every penny. Is there a similar non full frame Nikon that would be even a little comparable? Full frames are too large and too heavy for my small hands. And I do like Nikon.

How would the Nikon D300 or 300s stack up against this camera? Even these are out of my price range so I won't be buying anytime soon. Hopefully the trickle-down theory will extend from higher end to lower dslr cameras too. In the meantime I am saving my pennies.
