"FX Lens 120-300mm On a D800 or D3s"

I am going out this weekend to shoot a couple of Bald Eagles and 3 babies in a nest. The Nest is about 130 feet from the road and a 300mm just does not get it. My question is this.

1. Should I use a 120-300mm 2.8 with a 2X and a 1X teleconverter on my D800 or D3x.

2. Could I set the D800 or D3s in DX mode and use the same lens and teleconverters.

3. Or use my D3200 with the 120-300mm FX lens to get the CROP and the 450mm plus the teleconverters.

I really don't have or know the answer to this. What would give me the best combination to get the best shop.
