Does hot pepper affect birds?

I bought two bells. Chickadees, wrens and other small birds seemed to enjoy the seeds very much and the bell was gone in a few days. I put up the second one a week later, and this time, the birds seem to be put off by it. They take one seed and leave, not to return. I wonder if there is more hot pepper in this batch and if it affects birds. Can it affect their digestion? Anyone has science about this? Apart from keeping the squirrels away, the heat might have other secondary effects on birds.

Thank you for the question!  It's one I asked before deciding to carry hot pepper products in my store.  The short answer is there haven't been scientific studies done to understand what negative impacts there may be from using capsaicin in bird feed.  Below are articles that discuss what is known, and some wild birds naturally do eat pepper plants that have this chemical.  Birds' pain receptors are different from those of mammals, and they are not triggered by capsaicin.  The biggest concern I could find was the possibility of eye irritation from loose powder, but again no empirical data to confirm or deny.  That's why I only carry pre-mixed products.  I had so many customers ask for this option, that I added a handful of hot pepper products to my inventory.  I always caution people about how to use it safely (protect eyes and hands and wash after installation) and to keep pets from accessing the product.
In your case, I'm not sure what would be putting the birds off. The manufacturer uses a consistent recipe, so variation in the amount of capsaicin shouldn't be a factor. I would recommend placing the bell under a weather guard or other protection to minimize degradation and movement of small particles from weather.  There are many other ways to deter squirrels, if you choose not to use hot pepper products in the future.  See the articles below and the post I did on the topic: https://youtu.be/IJJo9A4ZyVo
