Extracting BIF - help needed

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to extract birds in flight to use in a composite project, but I'm having lots of trouble extracting blurred wing tips to look realistic. I've been using select and mask, and manually masking without success. My brushes have been set to   0 hardness. Can any one suggest some alternative brushes?

These photos were taken on an overcast day, and the bird's colours tend to blend in to the background in some places which is complicating the problem.
