The crop sensors, however, can give you a big advantage when you're limited by focal length. Distant wildlife and in particular birds are where they pull ahead, when you end up cropping and magnifying so much more on a FF that you lose detail.

Not much. With really long lenses, the resolution is limited by many factors like not being able to eliminate vibrations well, higher ISO at times (longer lenses are not terribly fast), too much air between you and the subject, etc. Then a cropped FF image would not be much different than an (already cropped) image from a crop camera with possibly a lower pixel density.
