Can you bird with the Oly 75-300?

Today was overcast so I though I would go for my walk in our park with small stuff, EM5Mkiii and 75-300.  I wasn't expecting much bird activity so didn't want to carry the heavier gear.

When I got there there was the usual group of photographer by the Coral trees, and quite a bit of action, so I though I would give it a go with what I had.  Some of the results are attached.  All pretty heavily cropped (40- 50% linearly) because of the distance, but images work for my printing purposes (US Letter or A4) at this size.

All shot RAW.  Exif should be showing, processed with DXO PL5 and deep prime.

All shot at 300mm and wide open

Comments welcome
