300/40-150 settings help - heading to Mexico for the birds and the bees.

in 24 hours I will be in the Yucatan with my Oly gear with the primary purpose of shooting birds and bugs. I will be taking the EM-1/EM-5ii and lenses which include the 40-150/2.8 and the 300. I have little experience in shooting these things - more a landscape guy. I would really appreciate any help in setting up my cameras - especially the EM-1, for use with the big glass. What is the best AF set-up? Drive settings? etc. This is way more weight than I would usually carry and I'm going to miss my EM-5ir body but Mexico has a limit of two bodies unless you want to take your chances.

Many thanks, in advance.
