Try carrying a bird book in a climate that feels like a sauna, dripping sweat as you thumb through damp pages. No need! This shirt, embellished with pictures of Costa Rican birds, serves as a guide and birding list. When you’ve spotted a bird, embroider an X in the box by its picture.

The how-tos: Shirt for $2 from Salvation Army with sleeves cut short and collar removed. Extra pockets on lower half of shirt were created from sleeve material (birders need a lot of pockets). Bird images scanned into computer and printed onto iron-on transfer paper.
