Common Yellowthroat ACEO in acrylics

I love the markings of this little song bird and I am really pleased how he turned out.  These birds can be found in North America ranging from southern Canada to Central Mexico.  They measure are about 11 - 13 cm in length and weight around 9 - 10 grams. 
Common Yellowthroat measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
