Eye (bird) focus button settings A7 IV newbie

Trying to get this and the many videos I checked on youtube don't seem to answer.

My settings

AF ON Button  - start focus (BBF)

Focus Area : Wide or Zone

Face/Eye Priority in AF - ON
Subject - Bird.

Button 1 -EYE AF

Ok now it seems that just hitting the focus start button targets the birds eye if it can find it, some of my birds are far away.  It seems to lock on also depending on the focus area.  Button one which I programmed to : EYE AF do?  It doesnt seem to do anything at all, at least in conjunction with my other settings.  Any ideas?  Do I need to have this button programmed here at all??
