I always try to shoot at 1/3FL with my D8900e bodies...especially when shooting birds from a boat...for obvious reasons. The image below was shot from a flats fishing boat using a 200-400mm f/4 hand held (Bushhawk assist). The shutter speed was 1/2500 at ISO 640 and f/7.1.
By the way, I shoot Aperture Priority and Matrix Metering for every bird shot. None of that Manual Mode and Spot Metering that Canon guys have to do because of their lower dynamic range. (Don't you just adore the DR of the D800!)
