Squawkers' Rights

The birds living on the old eastern span of the Bay Bridge do not like the new digs that Caltrans built for them on the new eastern span. The cormorant condos—named for the species of bird prevalent on the bridge—are two-and-a-half-foot-wide platforms baited with ex-Christmas wreaths for nest making. Caltrans has already sunk $500K into the new units, but the squatting flock could run the agency another $30 million in relocation and costlier demolition timelines. [CBS Local]
