I was happy to see that the Red-headed Woodpecker pair use a different cavity and seem to be nesting there. Their original site was taken over by Starlings but those are gone, maybe due to a controlled burn that happened right in that area.

Nice stand alone image, with the possibility of future shots at the nest.
