My son and I spotted these new birds on our pond in southern CT yesterday! Are they female Hooded Mergansers?
(apologies for the less than sharp photos)

First winter male on the left (dark bill and mascara), and female on the right (yellow bill and all brown head).
Agree - males always have bright yellow eyes.
