What Bird Am I?

A friend of mine and I spoke a bit about literature, and it was pretty apparent that I'm not very well read. Anyway, I'm going to incorporate some literary clues into the following puzzle just for good measure.

Here are a series of clues that lead you to a type of bird. Good luck.

Clue #1: Crimson, Nena's Balloons, Hestor Prynne's "A"
Clue #2: Mr. Toad's Friend minus "R", Sergeant Krupke had one and Porfiry Petrovich probably did too.
Clue #3: What makes a king out of a slave?, Who put the ape in apricot?, What makes the muskrat guard his musk?

And quick update... covered the SYNA for a small profit in the high 24s. The covered portion of EBAY will be called away. Hibernia is no more, as the Capital One (COF) deal is completed. Picked up a little bit of Under Armour as a pure gamble at 25.70.

I don't get it. Explain?

Is Sergeant Krupke the same as Officer Krupke from WSS?

Yes, Sergeant Krupke is Officer Krupke. The first line of the Gee, Officer Krupke is "Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke."

Once you get all 3 clues, the bird kind of just shows up.
