Starlings attack a blue climber's nest (1 Viewer)

Hello friends, with delight I have observed from my window how a couple of blue climbers prepared their nest into a round hole, about 5 cm diameter, that a woodpecker had made on a tree years ago. The blue climbers were carrying material for their nest. A few days later, starlings (larger in size than the blue climbers) came, entered the nest and stole the accumulated materials. They've finally kicked out the blue climbers. This irritated me and made me see that the life of birds is not as pleasant as we usually imagine.

What is a Blue Climber please? Perhaps a European Nuthatch?

Thank you.

Yes, nuthatch, sitta europaea.

I didn't know the English name and I just translated the Spanish name with the Google Translate. Now I know, thank you.
