Weathervane Wednesday- on my own street!

I've been collecting photographs of the many, many weather vanes in the Nutfield area (Derry and Londonderry, New Hampshire).  If you want a challenge, I'll post the locations at the bottom of the page so you can scroll down far enough to see the photo, but not the location, and try to guess where you may have seen these lovely weathervanes.

Do you know the location of weathervane #9?





This lovely goose or duck, with a fine aged patina can be seen along Old Nashua Road.  It is very appropriate since it is located near two ponds frequented by many canada geese and mallards (one pond on Parmenter Road in front of the office complex, and the other on Boyd Road). 

EXTRA!  EXTRA!
