Try folding your paper first before you start drawing. If you keep the body on the left half you’ll have plenty of room for the long beak on the right.

Tip: These amazing birds do have beaks in various lengths and colors, but their bodies are generally black. I’d stick to that plan if you want it to keep your bird with a “toucan” kind of look.
