About artist/note:

“Many small ducks come to the Arctic each spring. They search for shellfish and when they are fat and strong the females lay eggs. The Amaulik arrives late and both male and female take turns caring for the eggs and looking for food.”
Explaination from Cape Dorset Annual Graphics Collection 1977, p.43, pl. 29
