I'm sorry... I watched one and the picture quality was poor and most was... waiting.  I'd love to see this but only watched one because the first was not interesting.

Sorry... Just my opinion.

Pretty cool. The 2nd video is a bit better: closer range and you can actually see the crest and the white wings. Makes you wonder if there's some other, bird related, video treasure out there just waiting to be discovered.

Here's an article about the Zoological collection at Harvard that shows a very cool, but still somewhat sad, comparison picture of an Imperial, Ivory-billed and Pileated.

Pretty cool!! Boy, that crest is ridiculous! I thought the curl was exaggerated in pics, but I guess not! The comparison of the skins is really cool, too. Those things were huge! Wish I could have seen one.
