the most things i would point out are already improved in sharprm's edit.... especially the highlight on the eye and adding more shape to the wood... i also think those snake-like things in the bg look like the toucan is steaming... maybe steamed toucans are tasty but i would get rid of it ^^

Here is a quick edit:

Anyway for when you revisit. You should look at other finished pieces on PJ to see how to shade/outline etc. since this edit is messy. What you can take from it is removed dithering and tried to outline consistent with light source.

Isn't it a toucan? The outline on the branch is odd. You have a dark outline on the top (but light shading) whereas the bottom has a lighter outline. You should have dark outlines where the light is not hitting and light outlines where it does.

The dithering on the beak is nice but elsewhere not helping the piece. The beak needs a darker outline. Instead of dithering the bird's body, use another color. The background needs something to indicate leaves (eg. just use a jaggedy shape). The colors you used are nice.
