I wish to use one of the User Settings (U2) modes on my D7000 to have the most important settings for birds in flight readily available. Any suggestions as to which settings I should include? Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

Good suggestions above. I usually have 9pt or 21point, afs-c with the rear button set to af-on. Auto ISO on the D7000 is useful... I usually have auto iso on, capped at 1600 unless it's really low light, and by then it's usually time to call it a day.
There's a stickied post towards the top of the D7000 forum that's worth a read, it has some workarounds for the D7000s limited buffer ( link). The lens distortion correction feature in particular really slows the camera down.
