Today's Oil Study - Bullock's Oriole

I think this is the first Bullock's Oriole I've ever painted.  I have seen them on occasion in my apple trees but more commonly, I see the hooded oriole.  The Bullock's Oriole range is primarily the western half of the U.S. from Canada all the way south into Mexico.  I didn't intentionally do the circular brush strokes around the bird nor did I intentionally use complementary colors, but I like both.
