More Ivory-billed Woodpecker Video?

Ivory-billed Woodpecker searcher Bobby Harrison claims to have additional video of a distant Ivory-billed Woodpecker visiting one of his woodpecker decoy sites in the Big Woods of Arkansas. Listen to him describe it here (click on the 2/28/06 podcast). Why hasn't this video been made public, if it offers additional evidence for the continued existence of these birds?

Harrison was supposed to have shown the video at a conference in Boston, MA, in November. There were several notes about this in advance on the MASSBIRDS listserv, but nothing later.

Jackson, in his Auk commentary, mentioned the video, and said it was "equally problematic with regard to species identification" as the Lunneau video.

There was a discussion about this on a forum in Birder's World.

Cyberthrush mentions that "Birdchick" has been shown the video, here.
