Starling in birdhouse (1 Viewer)

Hello. On May 10, I hung a birdhouse on a city street at a height of 30 m. Every morning the starling arrives, climbs inside for 1-2 minutes, then flies away (video below). The starling does not remain near the birdhouse. What can this behavior mean? Is the starling going to live in a birdhouse? How to understand that it is going to nest?

I think it's definitely trying to decide if this is a suitable nest site?

I lived in Russia for a while and I know that in many places, Russians will put up nest boxes, just for Starlings.
