Thanks all for the ID correction and explanations.

I have updated my eBird list with the correct species, and more inportlany feel like I’d be better equipped to correctly ID in future!

Several birders caucused near the treatment ponds, poring over the Sibley book and app and the iBird app as these ducks sifted through the green algae, Were we right? If not, what are these? And why?
