Did you know many birds including peafowl use water to keep their Nair's clean? when birds preen themselves they get feather dander, dust, oil from their oil gland and even small feathers and these can become lodged in their nairs, when the dip there they it a helps loosen these things and the birds are able to shake its head and blow them out, a birds sinus cavity is a delicate thing  and bacteria can grow on many things stuck in them..

 Many birds also cool themselves on a hot summers day by dipping their entire beak in the water, take time to observe them and you can learn many things

 

IMHO a fresh bowl of clean water changed daily is very beneficial to birds ;) just some food for thought when you consider the method you are discussing here
