Well you got it all wrong here. As somebody said, all pixels are not equal. So if the pixel density is very high ( crop body with 24mp for example) you have a very big drop in shapness ( it's plain physics - difraction phenomenon mostly). So you might and up with that 300 pixels bird that looks mushy while on a FF body you get a 200 pixel bird that is very sharp and so it might take a resize to 300 pixels and still look better than your APS-C.

No current FF (well perhaps D800??) scales up looks even as good never mind better than shooting a distant bird with an 18MP+ APS-C sensor. Believe me I carefully compared the 7D that I used to have to the 5D2 I used to have and to my 5D3 and for distance limited stuff under good lighting the 7D easily beat them both (for bad lighting the 7D still always did at least a bit better than the 5D2 and often at least a trace better than the 5D3 although occasionally not under really bad circumstances). I say this as someone who only owns FF now, my old APS-C camera pulled in better distance limited shots most of the time.

I can post up test samples again.
