There is a free-form field "caption". Using that in combination with the 
keyword (e.g. keyword "Jackdaw", and in the caption "5 jackdaw") might do what 
you want. 

It also depends on what you use to do the later analysis. E.g. under linux it 
isn't difficult to extract XMP tags/fields, and then analyse those with the 
standard command-line tools (grep, awk, ...). Or go straight to the database 
and extract the info from there.

Good luck,
