I find DSLR's to be the fastest for moving subjects and there is no viewfinder lag with the optical viewfinder, but many seem to prefer mirrorless. In both cases they are all interchangeable lens cameras and many models are a step or so up from the bridge cameras in focusing. But many get along well with the Panasonic FZ1000 and Sony RX10. I'm sure you will get quite the varied list of suggestions.

General wildlife will mainly require as long a focal length zoom as you can handle from size and budget standpoint. Birds in flight will require long focal length, great focusing ability and a whole bunch of skill. It is not easy. The wildlife part can be handled by more lesser priced equipment compared to the birds in flight part. Higher end gear will help you here.
