Birds are amniotes, animals whose eggs are protected from drying out (a group that includes the mammals, birds, dinosaurs, and reptiles).
For the bird (or other animal) to be electrocuted, a potential difference must exist across two points of the bird's body (its feet in the case of a bird on a power line).
Many large birds (like eagles and vultures) are electrocuted when their wide wings touch a power line and a ground wire at the same time (often while flying in to land on a power line).

 Wild birds on USC campus
The 40 or 50 species of wild birds that populate the campus’ unique urban habitat are a chief reason Rudy Mancke describes the USC physical plant as “a little oasis” in the heart of the city.
Beyond the beneficial role the birds play in the campus’ ecology—hawks are predators of squirrels, for example, yellow shafted flickers eat fire ants, and Mississippi kites feed on high-flying insects—watching wild birds can also serve as a recreational outlet.
The best places to watch wild birds on campus are parks and gardens, open areas where there is water, along the edges of hedgerows and shrubs, in groves of trees, and around individual trees surrounded by open space.

 The Birds Are Falling: Avian losses could hit ecosystems hard: Science News Online, Dec. 18, 2004   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
If many bird populations dip toward extinction in the coming century, as scientists predict, widespread harm could come to ecosystems that depend on these birds to pollinate plants, disperse seeds, scavenge carrion, and control insects.
Scavengers, fish eaters, herbivores, fruit eaters, and nectar-drinking birds are particularly vulnerable, the investigators suggest in the Dec. 28 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
For instance, some birds that pollinate plants and disperse fruit seeds are so specialized that their loss will jeopardize the plants they serve, says Sekercioglu.
