Swallows Learn to Open Automatic Doors to Create Nests Inside a Building

These swallows learned how to fly in and out of a parking garage, where they made their nests, by triggering the detectors on the automatic doors. Watching them flying in and out is simply amazing.

I imagine the swallows probably liked the garage's environmental conditions, safe from the elements and with a more stable temperature, and somehow quickly learned that approaching the doors opened them automatically.
