Before I saw this bird, I had never heard of a Cassin's Finch. My first guess was that it was a house finch, which is very similar. But when I researched it, I found that house finches don't reside in this area. After looking at the description and some photos, I realized it was a Cassin's. That was pretty exciting for me since I had never noticed one before, though I may have seen them and not paid any attention. The bright red crest along with the hint of red in the wing feathers is the give away.
