Mix cayenne pepper in with your birdseed to prevent squirrels from eating it

Anyone who has a bird feeder has had to deal with the squirrels stealing the seeds. However, squirrels hate chili. Birds, on the other hand, can’t feel it at all and regularly eat chilies and pepper seeds in the wild. If you mix powdered cayenne with your birdseed, the birds won’t know the difference while the squirrels will avoid it like the plague. Just make sure it's not windy, otherwise you're going to have a really bad time.
