Tiel with Appeal

My pretty bird Ngalaiya inspired me recently to crochet a little cockatiel in her honor. In my pattern search, I happened upon an awesome free pattern for Natu (Pokemon character) by WolfDreamer.  I love Natu, but I also saw the potential for another character - one that I call Kooky Tiel.
Here's a link to the original, super-cool pattern (my changes listed below):

I also acquired a really cute pattern from Bulldogz on Etsy that I can't wait to get started on:
