Seagull Weathervane – Landing

Landing Seagull Weather Vane


Our popular Seagull Landing Weathervane has been ordered for beach houses, boat yards, and as a memorial. Most have been given as gifts. This swell bodied copper design is fun in the way we have eliminated the arrow and fletching, having the gull appear to be landing atop a globe. For the vane pictured, our customer requested optional gold leaf gilding to the beak and feet. Others have requested more extensive gilding, into the feathers. It is lovely either way. The gull also has glass eyes. Details such as gilding, eye color, inscriptions,  ‘Lucky Pennies’, and any further personalizing details to the design are decided at the time you place your order.

Most gulls belong to the large genus Larus. They are typically medium to large birds, usually grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They have stout, longish bills, and webbed feet. Gull species range in size from the Little Gull, at 120 g (4.2 oz) and 29 cm (11.5 inches), to the Great Black-backed Gull, at 1.75 kg (3.8 lbs) and 76 cm (30 inches). Most gulls, particularly Larus species, are ground nesting carnivores, which will take live food or scavenge opportunistically. The live food often includes crabs and small fish. Apart from the kittiwakes, gulls are typically coastal or inland species, rarely venturing far out to sea. The large species take up to four years to attain full adult plumage, but two years is typical for small gulls.
