Wildlife Photography - Micro Four Thirds (MFT) or APS-C?

Hi all,

Looking for the collective wisdom of the DPReview community!

I currently use a Sony A6000 with the LA-EA2 adapter and a Minolta AF 500 mm reflex lens for most of my photos, as I mostly shoot the local birds. I really enjoy trying (and failing) to capture the birds. Here are a few examples:

Cardinal singing

Local duck

I have started to feel the urge to get something at 600 mm or so, just to get a bit closer without the challenges of the donut bokeh present in the mirror lens.

Towards this end, I was thinking about switching to micro-four thirds to get the larger effective focal length, and picking up something like an 100 - 300 for more flexibility. What do you think?
