    Joe...for this one, I first spotted the general shape in Strava's Global Heat Map (photo attached). Then it was just a matter of zooming in on a map of Victoria and fleshing out the details…

    Jamie...I'll have to defer to my younger brother. He's the bird-nerd in the family. What do you say, Malcolm Lund? Cardinal...or something else?

    The inset thumbnail image makes it look like the big bird had shat out a small bird. No, just me? 😒

    Fantastic! Do you plan out the route before hand and follow gps device directions or use maps on your phone? I'd love to try and create one myself 😊

    Chris...here's a basic rundown about how I plan my doodles. I'm so familiar now with the map and the process, I usually skip step #5. https://gpsdoodles.com/2015/02/18/the-strava-art-process-part-1/
