I think you have American Wigeon in flight, and the duck second nearest in the bottom photo is a Wigeon. The nearer bird in the bottom photo appears to be a Northern Pintail, as does the nearest bird on the water in the next-to-last photo. The bird back left of the Pintail on the water in the next-to-last photo appears to be a Wigeon based on the head shape and white patch near the rump.
