Re: Your experiences with a long, fixed focal length, say 600mm?

I take bird photos too but mostly for fun. So I usualy walk around with a 70-400mm (105-600mm ) but now because of the lock down I carry a small 55-300mm and zip around , for the one hour I am allowed to do so.

A fix 600mm would not work for me and at times because we get flocks of sea birds here, even the wide end of my zoom is too narrow.

However many times I wish I had a longer lens but could not be bother carrying it and I still would need another one.

However I suspect that you also use other lenses for non bird photography and that is what I was getting at with the 600mm as one and only  tool.
