The most characteristic feature of GSW (IMHO), which separates it from all other European woodpeckers, is the black bridge on the side of the face/neck, between the nape and the bill. In MSW, it is...

I think it should play a significant role in species determination. But I'm really no expert on this. AFAIK there is a thread on it in the taxonomy sub-forum; if not, go ahead and create one. I'd be...

I don't have a dog in this fight, but mtDNA is just one clue and there are other types of genetic information to consider. In our own species, the analysis of y-DNA, for example, is also very...

Proportions are one major difference. Eared Grebe is more compact, with shorter bill and thicker(-looking) neck. This is partly because of the size difference (Western Grebe is significantly bigger).

Yes. I'm not aware of any recent splits of local forms anyway. AFAIK there is only one subspecies.

I think he only meant the bird on the left in the upper picture. On that one, the upturned bill isn't very obvious, if it's upturned at all. Although of course, it looks quite similar to the...

I have very little experience with Syrian WP unfortunately, but after having looked...
