  Check for yourself, it is a swan, isn't it?

Not that local, but it might be intresting to you:
On top of the Ceacilia chapel I recognised the swan. Now I am not sure if the Ceacilia-church is a Lutherian one, but the Swan is the sign for Lutherian religion. In The Netherlands all other churches have a rooster on top, that relates back to the chapter in the bible where Petrus gets warned by the crow of the rooster after he oraly betrayes his master Jezus Christ. It is a warning sign to all that believe not to betray yourself.
