All it needs to do is take pictures of birds in trees and stuff, during daylight hours (although good ability to perform in low light is a definite plus). It doesn't have to be optimized for people, nor for close-range objects/life-forms, nor for indoors.
Ideally, it would be fairly easy to use for the stated purpose.

I have to say again how useful it is to have a manual focus to be able to pick out smaller objects from the background.
A camcorder will also record sound.
