Pixel count of 24MP is nice and detailed if carefully processed, but it's no great secret that the D7100 is a lot harder camera than the D800 to avoid noise and notchy sharpening artifacts.  I've seen a lot of D7100 bird pics (not yours) with crunchies and smeared detail.  For said detail, 36MP beats 24, and FX beats DX for overall cleanliness, no doubt about that.  I have yet to see any D7100 pic that equals what the D800e can do, given the same subject framing and a top quality lens.  I would go further and say that cropping the D800e to 24MP gives a better 24MP picture than what the DX item can output.
