I had thought about a P900 but I thought that I read the image quality is not as good as a DSLR.

When you zoom out, this is mostly true; you will have more noise and less background isolation (deeper depth of field) than the potential with a DSLR with a much larger sensor and larger entrance pupils at wider angles of view.  If you really need the long end, though, especially with the P1000, you are pretty much getting what would be a 16MP crop from the center of a good 520mm FF sensor with a good 539/8 lens.  You might be using a lens with a larger entrance pupil on a DSLR to crop from it, but you won't be resolving it like that.
