Making Up
Sew up back seam
Turn to right side and sew up top, keeping first seam at the back.
For eyes I crocheted 2 circles but you could use felt or buttons.
Embroider a beak, and add tassels of the colours you used on each pointy bit. 

Making the Tassels
Cut a few lengths of yarn, about six inches long, fold them in half. Poke a crochet hook through the pointy bit of the head grab the loop of the folded bits of yarn pull them through and Make a knot, just like you would make tassels for a scarf.
