1.  Are these just Mallards or something more exciting?

2.  Rough-winged Swallow vs. female Purple Martin

Small group feeding quite low over marsh grass;  individuals looked dark in coloration from afar.

#2:  I found a better picture of the dark individuals and they are definitely Tree Swallows.

I think these birds have orange/yellow feet if you zoom in, which should eliminate Canvasback.

I saw those pretty legs. 🙂    I also considered Gadwall and looked for the white patch, but couldn't find it for sure, so I went with Mallard.
