Kingfisher (Still in Progress) - Bird #1

I am very close to completing this one...just a little left on the branch and then the background, and perhaps the odd little detail on the bird. The background is causing a small conundrum tonight. I'm not sure if I should go with a light green (yellow-green?) or perhaps a graduated wash of green to blue. Tonight I am leaning towards a green background with, perhaps, some salt dropped into it for a little texture. Either way, the background wash will be laid in tomorrow. Then, once this guy is done I will begin bird number two.
