Pixels-per-bird
3

A few years ago a member of thiese foruns(?) - I think it was in one of the Canon foruns(?) - coined the phrase "Pixels-per-bird", in the sense you present your idea.

In fact, what is of interest in the final stage of the image - viewing - is the number of "useful" pixels in the picture. That varies so much with so many factors, that it is difficult, or impossible, to find numerical rules for it.

PpB, in fact, depend on the lens FL, the size of the sensor, the pixel density (as stated above, that is one of the more important parameters), noise (if details are smeared larger size becomes irrelevant), even composition (if there are other elements, besides the main subject, of interest, it is different from one bird being photographed).

Of course, the same is valid for insects. So this is, indeed, a discussion of the Birds and the Bees!
