Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above the Library

I post another in a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane was photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #359?  Scroll down to find the answer.

 This graceful, three dimensional blue heron weathervane can be seen above the Whipple Free Library in New Boston, New Hampshire.  This weathervane is near the Piscatquog River, where blue herons can often be seen.  The library is fairly new, built in 2010, and located at 67 Mont Vernon Road, Route 13, behind the post office. According to the 2010 New Boston Town Report, the weathervane is located above a "sun scoop".

The crane weathervane was designed by Karen Salerno and made by the SkyArt Studio in Meriden, Connecticut.  It is interesting to know that all the artisans at the SkyArt studio are women!  While looking at their website I found several weathervanes I have already featured at "Weathervane Wednesday" including LaBelle Winery in Amherst, New Hampshire,  and Mann Orchard in Methuen, Massachusetts.
