If I have to choose between canon EOS R 50 and Canon EOS R10 for bird photography, which camera should I choose and why so?

It's going to be more about the lens for this particular genre of photography.  However, one large difference between the two is that the EOS R50 doesn't have a fully mechanical shutter.  Electronic shutter-wise, you can capture up to 15 frames per second.  Whereas on the EOS R10, it does have a fully mechanical shutter that can capture up to 15 frames per second.  Or up to 23 frames per second with its electronic shutter.

Greetings,

For wildlife photography, I prefer the R10 over the R50

Canon R10 vs Canon R50 Detailed Comparison (cameradecision.com)

The cameras are very similar as far as image quality, ISO performance etc.  The R10 is a little larger which will help with balance and larger lenses.  It has a joystick which I prefer.  Also better battery performance.

The R7 is a step up from the R10 and if you have the budget, would be another great option.  

If budget is a main consideration, consider Canon Refurb.  No refurb deals on the R50 currently.
