Is infection possible by touching a dead bird despite using a disinfectant?
You should not worry too much about that
although dead animals (including birds) may carry harmful organisms for humans, the chance your daughter caught something is very small. You did well to wash her hands and use disinfectant. It is important for you to know that you did all that you could. There is no need for antibiotics or any treatment unless your daughter gets sick, which as I've told you is a very rare possibility.
You should advice her though, to stay away from dead animals because their death can be related to infectious causes.
I hope I've addressed your concerns.
