it's the Panasonic G1/GH1 have a look at this link and scroll half way down:

It shows a 90- 400mm equiv FL lens that is quite compact, admittedly nowhere near as compact as the super zoom compacts, it has smaller lenses tan previous DSLRs as it is a 2x crop factor sensor.

There's also this: which takes the same lenses.

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 body.
