Opinions on getting an extender for my camera

Hey all I am just after some opinions regarding the 1.4x and 2x lense extenders canon offers. My bird photography gear currently consists of a Canon 80d and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. The reason for wanting to buy this extender is because for the past 2 years been on a self driven task to see how many different speicies i can find in SEQ and I am having extreme difficulty getting somewhat decent pictures to identify espically shorebirds which are extremely hard to get close to. The issue i am currently having is because i am required to zoom in dramatically into picutres the photo of the bird itself is too blurry and therefore i am unable to identify them. This is why i am looking at buying a extender however i dont want to spend money on something that isn't worth it.

Any opinions would be great :D

Sedie, Unless your lens is the MK2  it won't accept either of the extenders.
