Without wishing to rain on anyone's parade, there is now considerable doubt about the veracity of > the Ivory-billed Woodpecker sighting, with most experts agreeing that the bird in the footage is a similar woodpecker; the Pileated Woodpecker.

Some experts, not most. Take a look at this recently released, more detailed analysis of the video by a number of experts. It looks pretty convincing to me.
