comment What size lens is recommended for flying bird photography?
One other thing to keep in mind in all of this -- a modern camera body like the 7D gives you the ability to shoot at a higher ISO with acceptable noise, and also has a high pixel density, which means you can crop the image while maintaining good resolution. That means that spending money on a slower lens and a 7D is a good tradeoff to trying to guy huge, fast glass. There are many ways to get the shot these days

agreed on not trying the teleconverters on the 100-400. Canon doesn't qualify them iwth that lens, and my experience is the results are rarely good.

I'd strongly recommend renting the sigma first; I've heard too many photogs say it gets too soft at 500mm to be really useable for them.

comment What license to use?
yes. it's also part of a long term strategy to get my images seen so people recognize the name, so that when I do start trying to market my material full time I have a larger audience to market to.
