Calao Orange Label

I am attempting to recreate this vintage Orange crate label using Illustrator.  I have a limited amount of experience with Ai and that experience is almost as vintage as this label.  I grew up in Southern California and these old labels bring me back to my childhood. I had absolutely no plan to get sappy in this description but im rolling with it.  

I also thought about using this other label (pic below) of another orange label but found it to be too pixelated to see any real detail.  

So heres the first step.  I just started to outline the crown of the bird with the pen tool.  Proper use of the tool has always been so elusive and its great to start to understand so thank you.  Time to get to work.  Got a long way to go.
