Re: More 100-300, including a few using ext. tubes ...

Just my honest opinion {feel free to ignore}, but with regards to the bird images, i think you are asking far too much from both camera and lens at those sorts of shooting distances {in those conditions}....the result being a noticeable lack of contrast/detail/saturation, and the resulting crops producing little more than record shots.

I don't mean to be harsh

My suggestion would be to spend plenty of time observing, prior to photographing {maybe 90%/10%}, and methodically plan your best options to capture your subjects, whilst striving to use the full potential of the gear you own.

just my opinion though
