I see a dark bill, a head that looks dark green over rusty, mostly whitish underneath, dark trailing side of the wings.  Green-winged Teal?  The neck and breast look too dark but I'm attributing that to shadow.

Check the fifth photo:


But I don't like that diagnosis very much.  The bill looks too heavy.

I can see where @Charlie Spencer is getting Green-winged Teal with the head pattern but I agree bill shape is wrong.

I like a molting male Mallard or some sort of Mallard hybrid here. Mix of green and brown on head, brownish chest, grayish body, white outer tail feathers, white underwing coverts, plus Bill shape looks better for Mallard to me
