not the best but i would say blue winged teal
The closest bird in the foreground of pic three looks more like a Cinnamon (plainer face and slightly reddish color, which could just be the lighting). The rest all appear to be Blue-winged.
Thanks, Parula and BillyP. So I wasn't completely on the wrong track. I did notice the reddish color on that one bird. I have read that Cinnamon and Blue-winged often hang out together so it shouldn't be too surprising to have both in the same shot. It does make for long photo names though.

Considering bill size, I'd say all birds except for the last one are Cinnamon Teal.
Liam, I can see your point. The last bird does seem to have the shortest bill of the bunch. Anyone else want to chime in? At this juncture we are far from a consensus, not that we have to have one.
