The Birdwatcher name was chosen by Sharon From Security and Finn from Interpol (it’s a spy thing.) It is a slightly cropped summer top that looks great in a speckled or tonal yarn. It is constructed in the round from the bottom, up to the underarms (just knit more rounds to un-crop it.) You then knit back and forth (note - many people need to size down a needle size for this because their circular knitting is tighter), separately, and join with a three needle bind off (video link in pattern) to join the front and back. It is not difficult!
