This American Eagle weathervane depicts our national animal and treasure, the American bald eagle. This American Eagle weathervane captures the power and elegance of the bald eagle, with its beak opened in a hunting stance and mighty wings spread wide above its perch. The only eagle unique to North America, the bald eagle was once an endangered species but has since thrived because of federal protection laws. About half of the world's 70,000 bald eagles live in Alaska, in part because of the bounty of salmon there. Every detail of this majestic bird is included in the vane, from the intricate feather patterns to the wide eyes and talons. Just as in real life, this beautiful bird will change course with the wind, gliding effortlessly as the breeze points him in the direction of the wind.
This is a "full-size" weathervane, perfect for most homes. It's hand-crafted of the finest copper and brass and includes a copper, full-bodied figure, copper spacer balls and solid brass directionals. Available in Polished or Antiqued finish. Height: 16" X Length: 23". **Optional adjustable roof mount. Can also be used on a cupola because it already comes with a long enough rod to reach the mounting bracket inside the cupola.
