I believe that there is little doubt that for the best shot at BIF is a higher line ILC camera, and for me personally it would absolutely be a DSLR, but that is usually a call for an argument around here. Anyway, next is going to be a lens and probably around 600mm EFL or better.  So the lens alone even used looks to be $1,500 or more, plus the body. If the best success ratio of BIF is worth that to you personally, that's where you should head I believe.

But if you can live with, or maybe even enjoy the challenge of shooting BIF with a bridge camera or lesser priced ILC combo you will still come away with some fascinating great photos. It's just going to be harder and more of a challenge. The extra money does not guarantee you better photos, only possibly a higher percentage of great photos.
