What are these ducks?

Recommended Posts

Pic was taken at extreme range, then heavily cropped.  This was in a flooded farmer's field in western Missouri adjacent to the Missouri River yesterday afternoon.  With a KIlldeer and (I think) Least Sandpiper for scale, I'm certain the large duck is a Mallard.  Although I'm not certain it's not a domestic Mallard as it was absolutely huge--damn near goose-sized!  What are the 3 "plain-looking" ducks behind it?
