I've been googling for hours and went through over a hundred answers. Now, some say the bird doesn't form a closed loop, some say the current is so small that it doesn't kill the bird. From as much as I understand electricity, I'm sure the bird does make a parallel connection to the wire, so there must be some electrons moving through it's body.
Could someone please explain which is the right answer and why? And if it's the case that a parallel circuit is formed, how can I calculate the current going through the birds body?
