June 2018: Big Bird
This is a Pileated Woodpecker. They are about 14-16 inches tall, and live in forested areas with wet ground and plenty of dying trees, as that is the preferred habitat of their favorite food...ants.
They are a notoriously skittish bird around people, despite not seeming to mind being near buildings at all. So as long as they don't see you, they are pretty easy to photograph once you have found an area where they live.
