Handel's 'Water Music' anyone ??


FLORIDA KEYS: A US Coast Guard boat passes near the grand piano on a sandbar in Biscayne Bay in Miami.

A grand piano recently showed up on a sandbar in Miami's Biscayne Bay, about 200m from condominiums on the shore.

The piano, which weighs at least 1000lbs, was placed at the highest spot along the sandbar so it doesn't get underwater during high tide.

While officials aren't sure how it got there, they know it won't be going anywhere unless it becomes a hazard to wildlife or boaters.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says the agency is not responsible for moving such items, The Miami Herald newspaper reports. And, he adds, unless it becomes a navigational hazard, the US Coast Guard won't get involved.

For now, the piano has become a fancy roost for seagulls.
