Sunbird singing at a treetop (Coolpix P1000 at 3000 mm)

Lol, the P1000's long reach almost makes me feel like I'm cheating. This tiny bird (4-1/2 inches long from tip of long bill to tip of tail) was singing high up a treetop. I backed up a few steps to make the shooting angle a bit shallower, yet the camera's extreme zoom was still able to make the micro subject fill a good portion of the frame. :)

Call of the Philippine Pygmy Woodpecker (Coolpix P1000, 4K)

I just got the Nikon Coolpix P1000, to complement my Sony RX10 IV, in filming wild birds in 4K. I expect the P1000 to be my tool of choice for distant static birds. 

The RX10 IV, with its superior AF and better VQ (given its much larger sensor), will continue to be my 4K workhorse when 600 mm is enough reach, or in lower light situations.
