I have owned and sold 3 D500s. Each time I tried to like it, as I know it's a great camera, but I could never fall in love with the rendering of the backgrounds when framing a subject the same size as I would with a full-frame camera.
My advice - Pickup a 1.4 TC and use it on your D850. If you don't find it sharp enough, stop down to F6.3 and it should sharpen nicely...Otherwise return it.

My additional advice - Work on field craft to get closer to your subjects, as long as you can do it safely.

Read my first comment above, it gives a reason or two for using the d500 over the d850 for bird photography. Also to get 9 frames per second requires a battery grip for the d850.

I agree with your comments on the advantages of the D500.  However - I think if the OP can use the D850 and work on field craft in getting closer to his subjects his images will improve more than just adding a D500.
