Birds in flight query

Hi All, I have Canon 600d and Canon 100-400mm isII for wildlife. I have missed many BIF shots at times, due to slow auto focus and 3-4 fps performance with my dslr. Please suggest how can I overcome this issue without changing my gear? I know fps is a limitation, but I always try to switch between auto and manual focus, set manual focus and try to take shots. Also, please suggest on manual or AV mode, which one is preferred? In Manual, my shutter speed is around 1/250-1/400 subject to lighting, F5.6 - 7.1 and ISO set to Auto (max to 1600).
