They’re all dabblers in 1.

#4 - Northern Shoveler

#5 - 1st-cycle Ringer and Laugher

Except for NSHO, all of the ducks I can ID on my phone are GADW.

@Tony Leukering I should have clarified:  "bracketed by the dabblers who are actively dabbling"

The immature gull in the pic with the Laughing Gull seemed far too large for a Ring-billed, so we went with Herring.  What other field marks in favor of Ring-billed over Herring Gull are seen in this photo?
