Sculpture of an eider duck in Straumen, Inderøy, at the inner part of Trondheimsfjorden. The artist is Nils Aas (1933–2004) who was born here. The name Straumen means "The Stream", referring to the strong tidal current in the strait shown. The current brings food to the common mussels and the eiders come here in large numbers to feed on the mussels.
