Bird baths can represent a range of health problems for birds and yes Oleander 
is known to cause toxic reactions in birds (Rupley 1997).

My thoughts are that a bird bubbler is the best way to water birds in the 
backyard - not with a recycled supply but fresh...

As well as potential for posioning of water, it can pollute quickly.
