Duck, Labrador - Study Bill
Duck, Labrador - Study BillExtinct Species, Labrador duck - Study Bill.
Cam began researching Labrador ducks over 20 years ago and has recently committed to working on several pieces portraying other extinct species. His first completed piece featuring extinct birds was "Into the Light - Labrador ducks", which was shown at the 2011 Ward World Championships, World Decorative Miniatures Division.
In preparation for this piece Cam created a full-size "taxidermystyle" study bill for a male Labrador duck. We are making these bills available as resin casts. Very detailed, this bill represents Cam's best interpretation of what a live, healthy bill would have looked like on a bird that has been extinct for over 135 years. It can be used for reference in carving or painting your own Labrador ducks, or it can also be used by a taxidermist who may want to try re-creating a mount of a Labrador duck.
