Because circuit doesn't gets completed. if by chance the bird will lift her arm or wings.. And got in touch with the wire next to it.. Then the bird will definitely get electric shock with a high voltage which will cause death.

Birds get shock if it sit live wire and body touch earth/ground/neutral wire by completing electric circuit. But birds sit on single live wire without touching earth/ground/neutral wire that why it do not get electric shock.

Due to their legs lower portion is made of insulated material and blood not passing through those so when birds are siting on wires they does not get any shock when their muscles are comes in contact then they will getting shock.

Today while walking my dog I saw two birds on the ground, directly below several power lines. Both were the same species, male and female. It is really quite a sad story, because when they touched, they both were shocked with 440 volts of electricity.

Electricity follows the easiest path. For example, lightning doesn't go around the Earth to reach the ground. it takes an easy route. It is the same thing on a power line. The bird has two feet on the same power line, so the electricity would have to go up one leg and down the other.

In my tragic story, the two lover birds were obviously each perched on separate wires. When they touched to show affection, they made a path between the two lines.
