None of those lenses are long enough...

With wildlife you need more reach. 500mm minimum and 600mm if you can afford it and can carry the weight. The nikon 200-500 is a great value although pretty big and heavy for what it is. Sigma and tamron 150-600 lenses are also good values.

But the best choice by far is the 500mm pf lens. Fast, sharp and really amazing in what it can do for the price, size and weight. They are readily available these days too. This lens isn't as good as the big f4 primes but in many ways it is a better choice.
