Sure, if they say so...

To the OP: Basically you need a DX or FX SLR for bird photography, by far the consensus on the Nature and Wildlife Forum.

I think the best option for that kind of shooting is indeed with a midrange or good DSLR, but things have changed to my mind. You had to give up on that (BIF) with mFTs and all other mirrorless cams (with the exception of the Nikon 1).

Now, as I can show you, you do not. It is probably not as good, but it will suffice for quite a few persons but may be not the die hard birder...
