The connection between two lovebirds can be electric.

Sparks flew when two kookaburras used a power line to make love.

The lovemaking caused a power outage in Australia, according to USA Today.

They became birds of prey to the electrical current.

They didn’t survive the fiery session and nearly 1,000 homes lost electricity.

Western Power electricians found the two birds dead on the ground below the power lines.

It’s because the female partner spread her wings and touched separate power lines.

A Western Power spokesman says the birds became conductors for electricity.

Power was back up and running about an hour later.

The birds didn’t make it and were laid to rest in a private ceremony.
