Naselle River, SW Washington, yesterday. Mixed flocks of DCs and what we believe to be Red-faced. Terrible pics, but enough to tell, we think. Thanks.

Looks like Double-cresteds to me. The bill is thicker than Red-faced. Color can be hard to judge on these pictures. Also note the large amount of coloration on the chin which points towards DC rather than Red-faced.

In the second photo you can see the double crests on more than a half dozen of the birds.

Some of the ones that look a little different are Double-cresteds that have grown their breeding plumage for the year - those namesake double crests.
Total birds seen: 370
