termite mound nesters

Forest Kingfishers nest in Tree Termite 'mounds', and in the Top
End, NT, Red-backed Kingfishers will nest in 'normal' termite
mounds. I presume they would do it elsewhere also.
I suspect there are a few other species that nest in termite
mounds, either occasionally or regularly, but without having time to
check any refs, I can't think of any more.
Have a good birding easter.
