Starling attacks woodpecker nest, video

In this 27 April 2017 video, a male starling attacks a great spotted woodpecker couple’s nest in a nestbox. He drives out the woodpeckers and throws their eggs out. Then, he adorns the occupied nest with flowers to attract female starlings. However, no female starling is interested in him.

Frans van Hal made this video in his garden in the Netherlands.
