Nikon D500

I have been looking at a used D500 for birding. However, I currently have a D7500.  Will I see much improvement shooting BIFs with the 500 vs the 7500? The D500 has many more focus points and reportedly is faster, but the two cameras are similar. 
How much heavier does the D500 feel?  I seldom use a tripod for BIFs, so weight is a consideration.  Want to be prepared for breeding season in the Spring. 
I have read so many positive user reviews for the D500 that I am considering upgrading and trading in my D7500.  
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and experience.
