The 1.4x on your 70-200/f2.8 will provide better results than the slightly longer 300 zoom. You may very likely find out, however, that the 1.4x or even 300mm will still be a bit short. I use all Canon glass but for a few exceptions; If you can find a used Sigma 150-600c (contemporary) zoom, it has very good AF performance, quite decent image stabilization and will give you more than enough reach. The best part is used you can find them in the $600 (U.S.) range. Perhaps try to rent one first? Good luck with whatever you choose to do.
