Want to purchase basic bird photography kit (1 Viewer)

I have been a birder for about 2 years and now want to try bird photography. I am interested in purchasing a used basic camera and telephoto lens. I would like a telephoto lens with a upper end of at least 300 mm focal length and a camera body with a high ISO, fast shutter speed, and ease of transferring images. I am primarily interested in photography to aid in identification rather than being too concerned with artistic dimensions or printing. I would love to get set up for around $500 but am open to suggestions. [email protected]
