Ducks in the North

Clare and any other Nunavummiut (I really just wanted to use that word!) should be on the lookout for a new species to add to their yard list - a rubber yellow duck.
NASA has apparently placed 90 yellow rubber ducks in the Jakobshavn Glacier near Ilulissat in western Greenland to help understand how glacial meltwater moves from the glacier (I know it's a long way from Arctic Bay but you never know!). There is a $100 US reward for the first duck found and smaller monetary amounts for subsequent duck discoveries. More here.
