Here is a fantastic, high quality video of a male Powerful Woodpecker climbing up a tree trunk. The video was captured by Wim ten Have in Carpish Pass, Huánuco Department, Peru on October 29, 2012.

It looks a little bit like our Pileated Woodpecker. We're always hearin about the extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker but I'm surprised at how many giant woodpeckers there are.

Indeed. There are quite a few more large woodpecker species in Asia too.
