As we've traveled around the USA and the world, we've noted that people use weathervanes as a form of adornment and decorative expression on their houses and buildings. Big barns throughout the country usually have wind vanes  perched on their roofs, but many houses do as well, especially on the tops of cupolas or garage peaks. We've also noticed that though there are the "usual" horses and roosters, some folks choose to reflect local themes in their vanes.
