In the scheme of things...

For birds in flight, your best shots will be at closest approach. The trouble with the 1.3x crop mode is that you may well be clipping wings at that point. With this crop you're getting the same SNR as a D300/s (1/3 stop less than the D7100 "full frame"), and about the same resolution as a D7000. And the buffer is still very small even in 12 bit lossless. One upside is that with the 95 MB/s cards you get 4 fps with the buffer full.
