I don't know of any bird shooter who would make such a picture If you use FF you will use longer focal lengths to compensate for the somewhat lower resolution per area of the sensor on FF compared to smaller formats.

Yeah, I just love that 5lb image-stabilized 3000mm f/5.6.

Haha, get closer to your subject

But of you can fill the frame on FF you will obviously get the best resolution and result (assuming proper focus, exposure etc. ). But this is an old discussion isn't it?

Of course, but you can rarely do so.

Not rarely so, but often you have to crop since you can't compose as precisely as otherwise, but the same goes for crop cameras. But still bird shooting is a niche part of photography compared to all other forms. For example for landscape photography it is rather more relevant to compare at the same FOV.
