Yes, FF are not optimal for birding, APS-C might be better for that. That is not really news

Have you stopped to think why that might be?

Do I get a brownie point if I mumble something about photosite density and the subsequent better ability to crop on top of the already better FOV? Better edge separation due to closer photosites with less non-photosize space between them, and stuff like that?

(hint: it has nothing to do with sensor size - unlike what you've just said)

I don't think I said that it has anything to do with the size as such. I mentioned two different sensor formats, which amongst other thingsare differentiated by size.
