You will have to relax your zoom expectations, though. A 300mm lens on a crop sensor camera is only going to give you magnification similar to a set of 8x binoculars.

Guineafowl at 60m will only be tiny spot in your frame - this is why bird photographers go for the 600mm range lenses.

Agree
I have tried my best with my 70/300 and lost way too much detail on a crop.
My bird photography cane alive after I have switched to 150/600
Then some changes happened and I sold all my Nikon gear to my shame but eventually grew into the Fuji scene.
Finally they got a 150/600 of their own since neither Sigma nor Tamron produced an x mount 150/600.
However, 2k usd put the lens at least for a while out of my range.
I hope to eventually return to photography again
I got half decent Fuji gear but my current work consumes all of me.

That Fuji 150-600 is impressive
