I started birding with an adapted manual focus Nikkor 85mm f2 AIS. Here's one of my first shots:

After that I bought the Oly 75-300mm (the cheapest of the m43 super teles). You can read about my frustrations here on this forum. 300mm equals 600mm reach on m43 and even with in body stabilisation takes quite some practice to hold steady. That said, adapt your 300mm Canon prime and have fun.
