Our Inquiry Answer!

"Why don't birds die when they sit on a powerline?" We had a number of different answers so it took us longer to get the truth.

Today we decided to ask a specialist. We rang the local power company, Power Co. There Daniel spoke with a man named Neville who told us:
- "Birds don't die when they are sitting on the powerlines because they are not touching the ground at the same time. The power needs to go somewhere for them to be electrocuted."

Thanks to Neville, his answer has confirmed Miss Signal (who left a comment) and Jacob's thoughts. Now we have at least 2 reliable witnesses that confirm this answer! What a fun way to learn and what a cool journey!
