Eider Duck, also known as Uncle Eider, is Donald Duck's uncle and Fethry Duck's father, who was first mentioned in August 1944 in the Carl Barks story The Fighting Falcon (Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #47). In this story, Donald receives a falcon called Farragut as a present from his uncle Eider who does not live in Duckburg. Farragut arrives inside a big box brought to Donald's house by an expressman.

Donald briefly mentions his uncle again in a 1969 comic.

Barks never mentioned Eider again in any of his stories. Donald did briefly mention Fethry's father in an unnamed Disney comic from 1969, written by Dick Kinney and drawn by Al Hubbard.

Eider made his first visual comic appearance in The Empire-Builder from Calisota, where he was shown working at the Duck family farm. He later made a brief cameo appearance as a background character in Duckburg in the crossover comic Dangerous Currency.[1]

Eider was also shown on a portrait on Don Rosa's Duck Family Tree, as the husband of Lulubelle Loon and the father of Whitewater and Fethry Duck. Given the fact that, in O Nascimento Do Biquinho, Fethry mentions that he has got a sister, Eider and Lulubelle would have at least one daughter, making him the grandfather of Fethry's nephew Dugan.
