Nikon vs Canon - Body vs Lens

Few questions for discussing / recommendations.

I like to take pictures of wildlife (birds in flight, basically anything I see), nature, landscapes, and stars.

I have a bit of money to play with. I have around $1000, a Nikon D3300, Nikon 18-55mm VR (kit lens), and Nikon 55-200mm VR, Nikon 50mm f/1.8D. I don't mind selling everything so that's not an issue. I have a few options that I've been considering.

1) I could sell everything and save some money to get a Canon 7D Mark II with a cheapish lens, but upgrade that soon enough.

2) I could sell the 18-55, buy a 300mm f/4D AF-S + 1.4x Teleconverter, and keep the D3300.

3) I could keep just the 50mm, buy a D7100, and buy just the 300mm f/4D AF-S.

Any other combinations are welcome, these are just what I have come up with so far. I'd eventually get a wide angle lens for any of these bodies.
