unidentifiable duck? LI NY

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I took these pics back in September at Wertheim National wildlife refuge in Shirley, NY and I know the quality is terrible. This duck was grooming itself on a log at the far end of a pond and sadly the pics I got were as close as I could manage. I completely understand if this can not be identified but I figured it was worth a shot. All help is greatly appreciated!

Tough to tell but my guess is Hooded Merganser based on the head shape in the 2nd photo.
