In brief: No
Since there is no outbreak of bird flu in the United States, cleaning a bird bath will give a person many happy birds, but no bird flu.
In the asian countries where there is some bird flu, one can catch the disease from infected birds, such as when one cleans chicken coops and raises chickens.
