I favor the D600 over the D700 by a good margin. I have the D600 and have used it extensively under a wide range of situations. I also have a D800E.

The pros of the D700:
The frame rate of the D700 is a little better
It has better build quality
It has more AF sensors - 3 more in each corner. Not important for birding since you use the center sensor and back button focus.

The D600 advantages:
Newer AF system - and better in my view
Double the pixels
Better dynamic range
Updated battery (not better or worse - but the same as every new camera)
Two SD cards - storage and flexibility
Movie mode
Newer technology by about 5 years

I consider the dust problem a non-issue.

You might consider waiting for the announcement of a new DX body with more pixels on a crop, but my guess is you like the advantages of FX. While you wait, the D700 will continue to drop in value a little more and the D600 sale will end.
