1/2 a stop more for the 1.7X, so, wide open with the 300 f/4 and 1.7TC you would be at F/6.7, But depending on the size of the bird you might be in this range anyway to get whole bird in focus.

I have your old setup, the 70-200/2.8 and 1.7X TC, and it is still sharp and focuses pretty fast. Without the TC it achieves focus faster though since the camera uses the widest aperture for focusing before stopping down at moment of capture(if your stopped down)
