Welcome to the forum!

There are much better "birders" in this forum than I so I don't know exactly what questions to ask to narrow down which lenses to consider, but I'd think it comes down to price and what level of performance you want. Perhaps a good place to start is with the Pentax 55-300. I've heard it's sharp with good contrast. If you ask this question in the Lens forum, I'm sure you'll get many informed opinions as to what would be appropriate. Just mention a price range you're comfortable with and maybe the type of birds you want to shoot (maybe this is important, I don't know...). Anyways, welcome!
