How about Cinnamon Teal for #2?  Warmer coloration overall, along with a plain face and a red eye.  Cinnamon Teal have decent-sized bills, doesn't look extreme enough for shoveler here IMO.  Angle is tricky too.

Okay, I can see it as a teal.  I think you're right about the bill not being quite big enough.

I did not think to look at winter plumage but have some pied billed grebes in there winter plumage taken the same day.   But yes it does look like an eared grebe in winter plumage.  I was at HBVP in April of this year and have eared grebes in breeding plumage and did not make the connection.

and thank you for IDing the cinnamon teal.....

thank you
