Great timing! Are these crops?

Yes, 90% of the original is cropped away. The birds are so small, the price I have to pay in order to capture them in motion away from the feeder with a descent pose/posture.

Nice work. The DA40 would not be my first lens choice for birding, but you are getting results.

.... I imagine if I use my same technique with a larger/ full frame sensor with more megapixels (ie. K-1 or A7RII) + a professional photo editing program = a better image that would be approximately an 8 to 12 megapixel image after crop vs. My current 3 to 5 megapixel crop.

Once I established how close the birds would "tolerate" my camera, di figured I'd use my best lens (color saturation, sharpness). I don't have a large collection of lenses currently. However, I'm going to find s way to "trick" the camera into thinking my 56mm Lebsbaby Velvet is an autofocus lens which hopefully will allow me to use HSS flash with it. The Velvet is the sharpest and most awesome lens I've used so far - if used properly the images will look like photos taken with vintage glass.

Also, due to the unpredictability of the birds' approach, I wanted a compromise between reach and wide angle to allow more opportunity to capture the birds in flight. The less wide angle, the harder you have to work to catch birds in frame using tripod, but presumably less crop vs. More wide angle, easier to capture birds in the frame, but because of less reach have to crop heavily.
