I agree with the teal. But help me out with the merganser. I see a very contrasty white throat. Doesn’t that indicate common?  

This is why I chose Red-Breasted because it seems like it matches better in these aspects, but I'm probably wrong.

It's great to explain your reasons, but these show that Common can also have white lores and stripe behind the eye.
