Got this one last evening at Jumping Pound Creek; I didn't know they nested in old woodpecker nests, but this one is. What do you think of the white balance, I took the photo just as the sun was on the horizon, from the right, and it gave a very warm balance, so I adjusted with the eyedropper on a bit of mid grey bark.

If anybody finds any of my photos offensive, give me a quick explanation why, and I will remove it immediately.

Cheers,
Denny

Definitely a starling.......It is common for them to nest in holes in trees, buildings and even nest boxes so a woodpecker hole is perfect for them. Well captured image
