"Tuffted" House Finch?

"Tufted" House Finch?

This bird has been at my hanging feeder since mid April. It looks like a House Finch, but has a distinctive tufted head. Is he a one-of-a-kind bird or some species I just don't know.

I live in the suburbs of Seattle, WA.

Comment
In studying this photo, I believe he is a house finch. Unlike Cassin's finch or purple finch, the House Finch's red color on his head extends in a U shape around the front and sides of the crown but not on top.
