Getting close is the secret imo

I have mostly taken pictures of landscapes and my kids playing sports, but would like to get into wildlife. I am using a D7500 and the longest lens I have is the Sigma 100-400C. A lot of the wildlife around me are smaller birds so I was considering purchasing a Nikon 200-500 or a Sigma 150-600 for the extra reach. I will most likely be cropping most of my shots. Do you think it makes sense to purchase a longer lens for wildlife and if so, which lens do you think would be better.

People seem to rate the Nikon 200-400

But I think the key issue for wildlife photography is having a strategy for getting close to animals so you can get decent images.

If you look in the wildlife forum here you will see people taking various strategies for this.
