Not generally...you don't want your tortoises to eat bird poop. It's a good rule not to do that...some of our experts may have a different opinion tho.
I keep parakeets...bigger poop than finches

In the wild tortoises and birds are not concentrated in a certain space, so the bird poop is negligible. Even so, I'll bet the odd tortoise may pick up the odd parasite from the bird poop on his dinner. I wouldn't do it.
