Nikon D850 or D500 for Birds In Flight and Action

With the current price drop in the D850 I am wondering what everyone/anyone thinks about whether or not the D850 is as good as the D500 for BIF. I know how they compare in all other respects, but can the D850 hold its own against the D500?

While I find the D500 to be pretty extraordinary for BIF, acquiring and holding focus while panning, it does have a fair amount of noise when shooting at higher ISOs over 1600.

Your thoughts are appreciated.
