here is a picture of the same group taken three seconds before the last one I posted

I do value your opinion and I appreciate your response. Do you think that the one on the right is a greater scaup?

Brainfart. Yeah, I think your right about the RNDU. I feel like the rightmost one might be Lesser but I'm not sure. In the 1st picture it looks like it has a slightly peaked head, instead of rounded like Greater.

I think all Lessers.  That middle bird in the first photo isn't "cheeky" enough for Greater - and in the last photo the same bird has a peaked head.

I was wondering that, good point about the cheeks. I do think the bird may have switched places with the other female in the last photo. I do think its likely Lesser though.
