Weather Vanes are objects from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Found throughout Hyrule and Lorule, they are weather vanes made in the images of large red birds in Hyrule, and large purple bats in Lorule. They can be used to save Link's progress. Activated weather vanes also serve as warp destinations to where Irene can take Link. This is achieved by calling the young witch with the Bell, which can only be done in the overworld.
If a dungeon is cleared, a good deal of progress through the game is made, or the game is played for long enough, the Weather Vanes will start shaking and making noises to direct Link's attention to them. In the latter situation, they will also advise that the player take a break from the game.
In Hyrule Warriors, a small Weather Vane icon that looks very similar is shown on screen while the game is saving.
