Which model is that, Chris?  If a camera has a DSLR sized sensor, won't it need 
to have a DSLR sized lens?  For bird photography the lens is so big that the 
body size is almost irrelevant.

any of the big name (Nikon, Canon, Panasonic, Sony) super zoom compacts will do 
a good job for you for that sort of work, Panasonic have just released a new 
type of camera which is sort of hybrid between a DSLR and the compact styles, 
but it does attract DSLR level prices and has better Autofocus and low light 
performance due to a DSLR size sensor, but in a compact size
