I've done a lot of birding with the 55-300. I often wish I had something longer, but just as often I'm glad it's so light and hand-holdable.

Here's an example of a situation where the 55-300 was perfect, and I might not have gotten the shot with a DA* 300 or anything bigger... a wrentit that has been captured for banding:
