I would suggest that for wild bird photos, you would be better off with a
bigger lens..... try the R family.....

(All puns intentional.)

By the way - I_m interested in the M6 only because of my interest in
photographing parrots in the rainforests of South America.
I wonder if 135mm is enough telephoto - is there nothing more powerful from
a third party? - perhaps I would be better off with a Hassie, except for the
size and possibly the build quality of the Hassie body which is not, I've
heard, in the same league as the M6.
