Re: The best choise of Nikkor 200m + ?

The most affordable option for a long zoom is the AF-P DX Nikon 70-300 VR. These are under $200 brand new on eBay (bought mine for $140, but they've gone up).

It's only 300mm though, so you'll have to get pretty close to the birds, and resign to a bit of cropping.  Here is a relevant topic with some samples:

And here's one I took with that same lens.
