Why can birds sit on a power line?



A. Because birds have minimal resistance compared to household electronics, so current is diverted to the houses instead
B. Because the wire is in the air and air has infinite resistance so no current flows through the wire
C. Because birds feet are insulated so current is not conducted through them
D. Because both feet are on the same voltage line, so there is no potential difference, so current does not flow through the bird
