The Great Slaty started showing up in Cheow Lan Reservoir in Khao Sok National Park a few years ago. It's pretty easy to see now, that is, if you know where to look. I don't know if it's territorial or not, but there are a couple of spots where it can be seen on a regular basis.

The only other place I've seen them is on Ko Tarutao Marine National Park.

I didn't realize that it's the biggest woodpecker in the whole world.
