"RE: 800 0r 800E"

Frank,
One consideration that no one has mentioned regarding the D800 and shooting birds is the frame rate which is only about 4 fps in RAW. Birds are fast moving and the higher the frame rate, the more more likely you are to capture "the moment" in a sequence.
That said, I shoot birds with the D800, the D3s, and the D300s. I tend to shoot more with the D3s and D300s because of the higher frame rate. However, I've gotten some incredible shots with the D800 as well. Bottom line is that if you do capture the moment with the D800, you will have a spectacular shot.
Good shooting!
Tom
