Pinecone Bird Feeders

Arielle Debira ‘04
1. Each child needs a pinecone. The best is to collect (only what you need,
leave the rest for the other critters out there) a few from your yard
or local park. If you purchase them, make
sure there is no preservative or other weird
chemical treatment on them.
2. Get some peanut butter or other nut butter.
For kids with nut allergies, you can substitute
lard (yum)
3. Do a little googling to find out what birds
are native to your area and what kinds of
seeds they like. Or just go for an all-purpose
backyard bird seed for whatever region you
live in.
4. Find some scraps of string, yarn, hemp etc…
5. When you are ready to assemble your bird
feeders, lay out some newspaper or other mess
6. Use a spoon to spread the nut butter or lard
thickly all around the pinecone. Kids who don’t love having sticky hands can
use gloves for this part.
7. Next pour out about a cup of seed on the work surface and roll the
pinecones back and forth in the seeds until
they are fully coated.
8. Tie a string to one end of the pinecone
and hang somewhere outside- preferably
where you can see it from a window:) *you
can also tie the string on before you start
the messy part, but you may end up with
sticky strings.
9. Watch for birds, enjoy watching birds,
learn about birds, enjoy learning about
watching birds:)

My book The Hardest Place: The American Military Adrift in Afghanistan’s Pech Valley was
published in March 2021 by Random House. Some Terrans of the 2009-11 era may remember that
I used to spend my summers in college freelancing in Iraq and Afghanistan -- the reporting for
what became first my senior thesis and eventually this book began during one of those trips, in
2010. The book zooms in on one Afghan valley and tries to reconstruct the story of U.S. military
involvement there from various American and Afghan perspectives across twenty years.

Since publication in March, The Hardest Place has gotten some nice write-ups, with a Foreign
Policy reviewer calling it “spectacularly executed,” the Washington Post writing that it “demands
your attention, even when you would rather look away,” and a New York Times write-up
describing it as “unique in its completeness.” Maybe my favorite was the historian who does the
“Tides of History” podcast calling it “deeply reported (to an extent that’s hard to describe).” It also
made an Economist top-ten list of books to read about the Afghan war and even (to my surprise,
since the CIA doesn’t really come out looking great in the book) got some muted praise
(“judicious”) in a CIA publication.
