It's old, primitive, has no VR/IS, tiny sensor. It's cheap, but there are better ways to go. This Panasonic FZ80 costs more, but gives so much more - a better deal all around.

It depends how serious you are about bird photography.If you want a camera just for record shots it may be ok.If you want to capture high quality images forget it,bridge cameras,even the top models won't give you stunning images like a good slr or mirrorless design will.

I dont know your budget but that camera does not have a viewfinder and working off the lcd is not easy, as suggested above the Panasonic would be better if you want a bridge camera.
