When using the D7000/D7100, is it okay to use AF-C with the central AF point even for static subjects?

When photographing birds, it is rather difficult or time-consuming to change from AF-S to AF-C if the bird takes off. So, would it be safer to always use AF-C? After all, for non-moving subjects, AF-C would act as AF-S, wouldn't it?

Of course, by only using AF-C with the central AF point, I would lose the advantage of using Dynamic AF. On the other hand, the central AF point is considered the most accurate.

Would appreciate your views.
