The powers that be are in the process of converting the old railroad bridge at Spanish Harbor Channel to a fishing platform. That entails installing metal railings from one end of the bridge to the other. I expect it will make a great fishing location.
Unfortunately, the old bridge was a popular roosting spot for large numbers of pelicans and other water birds. The new railings disrupt the roosting areas. I will miss the pelicans, much like I miss the ospreys who have lost their platforms, especially the one just west and south of Spanish Harbor Channel.
