Hello Bob,
Thanks for the comment.And yes, it's head does have similarities to Pileated's.Actually we have aGreat Black Woodpecker or White bellied Wood pecker which s very similar to Pileated Woodpecker.
it's upperparts are black in colour, underparts and rump white. And it lacks the white lines from bill to the throat.You can see its picture in the link given below.
