Lots of birds have crests. If you're in the midwest it could be something as common as a bluejay or cardinal. If you're looking in more exotic locations, cockatiels have crests, cockatoos, Atlantic puffins, and many many more. Your location and the color/size of the bird would be helpful in identification.
