- The Splendid Fairy Wren, also known simply as the Splendid Wren or more colloquially in Western Australia as the Blue Wren, is a passerine bird of the Maluridae family. They are found across much of the Australian continent. From central-western New South Wales and southwestern Queensland to coastal Western Australia. They inhabits predominantly arid and semi-arid regions. This Weathervane captures a mother and her young chicks. I wonder what she is teaching them?
- The Fairy Wren Weathervane is proportional and we believe captures the energy and cuteness of these beautiful creatures.
Generously proportioned the birds are 315mm high and 510mm across the 700mm arrow. Directionals are 590mm and overall the height of the Weathervane is 745mm.
Proudly, this weathervane is Australian made.
How It Works
The arrow and figure revolve on a ball bearing over a stainless Steel Shaft. Each weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
Installation of Fairy Wren Weathervane
A Stainless Steel mounting plate is available for fixing to the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a Stainless Steel gable bracket available (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.
Which one to use ?
Which one ?
Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. These brackets are suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. The shaft extends down the face of the Gable. There fore it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
No Mounting Bracket is also a choice but having the suitable bracket makes sure installation easy and effective.
