650lbs grand piano mysteriously appears on Florida sandbar

It's causing no treble: A Coast Guard boat inspects the piano, which sits some 200 yards from the shore. Authorities have said it is not their job to move it and they won't until it presents a hazardIt's causing no treble: A battered grand piano, bearing the marks of its new position as a fancy roost for seagulls, is perched on a sandbar in Miami's Biscayne BayA 650lbs grand piano has mysteriously appeared on a sandbar in Miami's Biscayne Bay - and no one appears to be coming Bach for it.

The piano was placed at the highest point along the sandbar, about 200 yards from shore, so that it doesn't disappear underwater during high tide.

who put it there - and, almost more importantly, why - remains unknown.

It could have come from one of the condominiums that line the shore of the bay - or it could have come from further afield.

The one thing authorities do know is that unless the instrument turns from a minor into a major problem, they won't be moving it.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino told the Miami Herald that the agency is not responsible for moving such items.

And, he adds, unless it becomes a navigational hazard, the U.S. Coast Guard won't get involved.

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