Help need with hummingbirds and R5

Hi

I like taking pictures of birds in-flight and (among other birds) have taken pictures of hummingbirds (at local arboretum) before but with either 7D Mark II or 5D Mark IV.  When using these, I use the center point plus 4 surrounding assist points on my 100-400mm II (w/ or w/o 1.4x III).  I plan to take my (recently arrived) R5 out for a spin at the same arboretum to try on some hummingbirds.    Questions please for those who have tried this before:

Would face tracking work on hummingbirds?

How about eye tracking?

What are your recommendations wrt AF?

Thanks

Duy
