Unknown bird

I'm in Long Island NY. Bird was 3 inches to tail, tail 3 inches. Bright orange, thick, short, parroty looking beak, same color crest on top of head, except for orange thin tail, the bird was a soft grey. Made a peep, peep noise. I thought it was a large parakeet or a small parrot, which got loose from its owner. However, might be indigenous bird I've never seen before. So cute!
