Weathervane Wednesday ~ My Favorite Eagle

Every Wednesday for more than two and a half years Vincent and I have been posting photographs of weather vanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weather vanes. If you know an interesting weather vane, please send me an email or leave a comment below.

Today's weather vane was found just over the border in Vermont. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #142? Scroll down to see the answer....

The ubiquitous eagle weather vane is usually seen on civic buildings or banks.  This weather vane was photographed at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, on a cupola above the cafe.  It is not an old building, unlike most of the other galleries and barns at the Shelburne Museum.  However, this weather vane caught my eye because it is so unusually graceful and artistic.  Most eagle weather vanes are boring and static.  This eagle looks as if he were just landing, or perhaps just launching himself off the roof.  His beak and expression are beautifully designed.  This three dimensional weather vane also has a gorgeous patina.  He is not a boring eagle weather vane!
