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.

“It is most profitable, it is blessed, to be always looking beyond second causes in all our trials and distresses, and to discern the Lord's hand, in infinite love and wisdom, appointing all. For this brings the soul into a state of resignation and tranquility at least, if not of holy Joy.”
–Robert Hawker, Poor Man’s Commentary, Psalm 17
