Labrador Duck

Labrador Duck (Somateria labradorica), a large duck allied to the Eider Duck, now extinct, but formerly valued for its down. The last-known specimen is said to have been killed in Halifax harbour in 1852. A few examples are preserved in museums.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
