Adult male and 3 females. Don't dare to age these based on this photo. The most common Aythya this far south.

2 females. The dark eye indicate young birds. Don't know if the grayish feathers on the back of both birds are unusual. However, can't find photos with similar plumages, but perhaps it is a trait of the first basic plumage.
