I'm a bit worried that the lens can't zoom. I think I like zoom lenses. It looks flexible to use. Have you ever used a super telephoto lens that cannot zoom?

With bird you do not need zoom too often because you usually crop. Most super teles are not zooms. All 600mm f4, 500 f4, 400 f 2.8 are primes. I use 500mm on crop camera D500 and I am fine. You have full frame so 500 f4 would be even better.
