T-Shirt Tuesday: 3 for Pishers

Do you use pishing when out birding to get birds to come in closer? The idea is that curious birds hear you saying "pssh pssh pssh" or some other strange noise (kissing one's hand is another method of pishing) and come in closer to see what's going on.

Today's highlighted shirts are all based on the practice of pishing. Since a lot of non-birders will have no idea what it means to pish, these could prove to be great conversation starters!
