As per Jim Carpenter (Founder of Wild Birds Unlimited) in his new book "The Joy of Bird Feeding" (Pg 243)

"...Although the anecdotal evidence to date strongly suggests that birds are unharmed by capsaicin-treated foods, there is still no empirical data proving that capsaicin is safe for all feeder birds..."
