Birdies Wednesday!

I took this picture and it sparkles me to ask this. How does a bird sit on a high-voltage power lines without getting electrocuted?

Without going into scientific details, here is the simplest answer I found. For the bird to get electrocuted it must be touching two wires. Once the bird touches the two wires it completes an electrical circuit in this case it would be classified as a short circuit and the voltage and current run through the bird.

There you have it. Time for softies - Happy Wednesday!
