I have had good luck with my RODE NTG-2  It runs on a battery or phantom po=
wer, and in your case, the AA battery is most useful.  They are resonably p=
riced, and are worth looking at.  I use mine for the same purposes you have=
 indicated - birds, nature, and interviews but with a Marantz PMD-661mkII r=
ecorder, and I have seen them for $249.00 new very recently.  The RODE NTG-=
2 came highly recommended to me by a documentary filmmaker friend who has u=
sed many more expensive microphones.  I also paired mine with the K-Tek Nau=
tilus Shock Mount and the RODE WS6 windshield.

Good luck,
