Hi Jean
This is a House Finch. They have a beautiful song and interesting colours. This is a nice portrait showing the underside and deep red colour of the Finch. The blue sky makes for a nice background colour.

Yes obviously northern hemisphere, given the budding tree, down this end everything is dropping leaves. Obviously seed eater given the bill.
House Finches are native to the southwestern United States and Mexico, but through natural and artificial range expansion, they are now abundant throughout North America. House Finches first expanded into the Columbia Basin from points south in 1885. They were introduced in the eastern United States when illegal caged birds were released in New York in 1940.
