Immature Hooded Mergansers?

Recommended Posts

Both are females, notice the dark eye and yellow patch on bill, ruling out eclipse male. I don't think that either bird is a juvenile or immature, which tends to be ever slightly more uniformly brown overall, as opposed to different shades and values on the mantle, sides, and crest.
