CLOSED: Need help with ducks

Fayette, IA(Zone 4b)

I apologize for the fuzzy pics - these were taken from a kayak at my max magnification and cropped. I can't identify from my guides. I assume the black one is different than the other 3. When I tried to get just a little closer they took off and I managed to catch 2 before they were out of sight.

in center picture the dark duck looks like my Hooded Mergansers right now. The other 2 look like American Widgeons from what I can see. It is molting time for them all.

Maybe Resin can tell

Yep, American Wigeon for the two in flight, and (probably a juvenile) Hooded Merganser for the dark one.

Thank you so much! I'm trying to learn, but it's going slowly.
