brass eagle on brick house

My husband and I just got this brass eagle:



The eagle is 15" wide and 10" high and weighs approximately
6 lbs.


My question is how would we go about hanging this on the outside
of our brick house.

A masonry nail driven into the mortar joint should hold it. Better yet you can drill a hole in the mortar joint, insert a plastic molly and run a screw in leaving enough protruding to hang your brass.

I went to a value home center store and got everything you said. I know I would have gotten the wrong bit. Thanks
