How many fps is enough for wildlife (bif)?

I am thinking about getting a nikon d850 for wildlife but specifically bif and perched birds, and i am hesitant to get it to shoot bif with it because it only has 7fps and 9fps with battery grip, is that enough fps for bif? I know i can get a d500 with better af, and better buffef and more fps, but i want the d850 for the sensor and resolution...is that enough fps?
