Is that a female House Finch and if not, what is it?

I honestly don't know. I haven't noticed tufts on the pictures of house finches that I've seen.

Do these pics help? Smiling

Baja,

Beautiful, clear and sharp pics.

Regarding the tufts, it could be a juvie (one born this spring) house finch.

Here's some links.

Awesome, thank you Marilyn! Smiling I added the name of the bird to the caption.

I've seen males and females interacting on the wires above our house, but I don't remember seeing a juvenile before (or being close enough to tell the difference).

Baja,

You're very welcomed. Sometimes the juvie birds have little tufts of feathers on their head. They will get around to grooming them like their parents do and smooth them out.
