What camera and lens for birding?

I spent last 3 months using my Lumix FZ300. I got so much into birdwatching and bird photography that I'm 100% sure that I won't regret buying something more expensive. I bought the FZ300 for around $250 and now my budget is around $1000-$1200. I found a used Nikon D5300 + Tamron 150-600 G1 for exactly $1000 and I'm wondering if it can get any better in my budget. I only photograph birds so 600mm lens is a must-have.

Also here's the western marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus) that I shot yesterday.

with my FZ300.

Nikon D5300 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
