Pileated Woodpecker with Chick Weathervane

Pileated Woodpecker and Chick Weather Vane


Our Pileated Woodpecker and Chick Weathervane was one of two ordered by a family whose home was under construction. This vane will go on the roof of the home. They also ordered a Fairy Weathervane to be mounted near the pool.*

To create subtleties of tone we used brass for the nest stump, and copper for the birds. We then applied optional palladium gilding to portray the white feather markings of a pileated woodpecker, red enamel for the red head feathers, and gold leaf on the worm the nestling is being offered, to give the action of the scene some emphasis. Even with the metals so very fresh and new this weather vane is a success. As the natural weathering and darkening process begins the elements of this design will become even more realistic and satisfying.

*We always extend a 10% discount on second orders, but ordering two weather vanes at once will gain you the 10% discount on both!
