The D90 is a very good camera.
Go for a used D7000, it is better than the D90 in every way,
including Higher ISO and image quality.
The higher resolution will help when you crop your birds.
Or wait for the D7100.


Raise your shutter speed and work on your hand holding technique.
When you first get it, try using a MonoPod (makes a good walking stick).

The 80-400 works really well on the D7000.
Consider an 28-300 as it works even better.
Also consider a 300mm f4 with TC II 1.7x.

Actually the D7000 is not less forgiving,
Higher resolution just shows user error mo beta.
