Does she actually have OCD? She might know perfectly well that her fear isn't rational but that still might not make any difference to how she feels.

I hate certain insects, most of all cockroaches. They freak the hell out of me. Even the thought of a cockroach makes me shiver in disgust. I know that I'm being completely irrational and that a cockroach can't really harm me in any way but that still doesn't change how I feel. It does change though how I treat them. I try not to kill insects (at least on purpose). It's not their fault that they are ugly disgusting little zombies who I wish didn't exist....

Anyway, as long as she doesn't hurt any birds, don't let it bother you too much. People have got all kinds of crazy fears and obsessions (me included...).
