Northwest photographers

I fantasize about having a BIG lens for birding photography.
Unfortunately a Canon 600mm costs more than my current car.
I'm curious if there are enough NW bird photographers to make the numbers work on a shared purchase. I'm guessing this glass with a stand alone insurance policy for the 1st year would run about $8k. Just an exercise in math basically...I'll probably end up renting this lens from Glasiers for $80 a day for a long weekend this winter.
