Expert Answer:

Yes, it'll be electrocuted, provided the the two terminals of the resistor are maintained at different potential.

Normally the bird sitting on wires, are sitting on wires of the same potential, so electrocution.

However, if they straddle any two wire, then definite they'll be electrocuted.
