Here are my settings for shooting birds with my D300 and 500mm f4 VR II lens:
Focus Mode (SCM): C - Continuous Servo AF
Autofocus Area Mode: Dynamic-area AF
Metering Preference: 3D Color Matrix II
Exposure Mode: A - Aperture-priority auto
Release Mode: Ch - Continuous high speed
a1 AF-C priority selection: Release
a2 AF-S priority selection: Focus
a3 Dynamic AF area: 21 points (or 9 points)
a4 Focus tracking: Medium
a5 AF Activation: AF-ON Only
a6 Focus point illumination: On
a7 Focus point wrap-around: Wrap
a8 AF point selection: 51 points
a9 AF assist illuminator: Off
a10 AF-ON for MB-D10: AF-ON
I hope this helps as somewhere to start.

Kind regards.
Piet.
