I got some advice from "Wingnut" after my post about how I might solve my problems with the 100-300mm lens I highlighted yesterday in my egret shot. The focus was not holding or was just plain soft at 200-300mm. She suggested using manual focus at the long end. So this afternoon I was over in Carmel. I trod over to the beach and shot waves at 200-300mm using manual focus. Ta-Da! It worked!
