This morning's better light leads me to believe the diving duck i'm watching isn't a redhead but a canvasback. I got a much better look at its beak today and it definitely had the sharper profile compared to a flat familiar duck bill. The lightness of the body compared to the redhead is probably also due to the better light and the bird staying on top of the water more than when it was chasing the mergansers.
