I guess I never realized this was the point where the 2 rivers meet.  I always call this the Black Tern bridge because 'in days of ole' this was a reliable place to see Black Tern.  Not any more?   Am I remembering this correctly?

It is the Basin Harbor Rd out of Vergennes. Take the Panton Rd west out of Vergennes. A right at the flashing light is the road to the confluence. Birds are east of that in the mud flats.
