Maybe a 600MM F4 and dSLR weren't really designed to take photos of tame captive birds sitting in good lighting conditions?

Any reason a Panasonic FZ200 couldn't have taken those photos, and saved you even more money?

IMO there is no reason to force yourself to shoot in bad light, just find better locations.  BIF is one advantage of the 600mm over the Pana 100-300mm, and maybe 30% better IQ.

1/200th at ISO 800 is not what I would call good lighting condition for bird photography.
