A D500 and a 200-500mm f5.6 VR is the ideal amateur birding setup IMHO

2700$. 10fps. Almost unlimmited buffer. Fast aquisition and keeps up with the subject like a champ.
If you can't get great bird pictures with this set-up, you are not at the right place for birding and need to spend some of those 2500$ you saved over the A9 and 200-600 to get to a better place for birding :).

I hold the truth... A very specific, based on my experience and only relevant to me truth, but the truth nonetheless!
