Somebody's Pet?

What is this bird? He's cute and colorful, leaving me wondering if he was someone's pet. This is the first time we've seen him at the cottage, so I had to snap some photos of him. or her.

I have not taken the time yet to figure out what kind of bird it is. I'm guessing it is some sort of finch, by its shape, but the multiple body colors are throwing me off. Plus I just don't have much experience with knowledge of pet finches. Just finches in the wild.

I hope he comes back!

It's a painted bunting. We had them at the lakehouse, too.
