Stumped on a duck

Recommended Posts

Wasn't able to get pictures but I got some decent looks over the 30 min or so I watched it. Lewis River - SW WA. Here are my notes from the time. 

 Diver about the size of the COGO in the same area. Universally light brown body, head and neck darker chocolate, wings slightly darker than body. Large broad slightly upturned? bill with a blue tinge?, longer than the head. Very prominent white ring of feathers around base of the bill making the bill appear nearly as wide as the head from the front.

Closest guess would be a Redhead but still not sure.
