Nice shots.  Have you tried the built-in Extended Tele-Converter feature?  It basically increases the reach of the lens up to 2x.  So the 200mm equiv. of the 35-100 is now 400!

The catch is that it does not work with RAW and you have to set the image size to medium or small JPEG.

Basically, it crops the center of the sensor in camera and does not sacrifice any resolution.  This will allow you to be further away from bird and then use mechanical shutter to better freeze action and have full selection of ISO.
