Monopod

Monopod or even tripod works for birding including most BIF but not really for airshow that planes flying all over place and over head frequently.

200-600 G is a bit sharper and also get AF locked a bit faster than 100-400 GM + 1.4x TC. And then zooming is quite faster and more precise control than 100-400 GM, no mention latter with 1.4x TC. For birding 200-600 G is a better choice according to many.

I keep 100-400 GM that is just more versatile and much easier to carry with. It's one of my kit lenses I carry into trips including landscape oriented ones.
