Ring- bill duck
Ring-necked ducks should have been called ‘ring-bills’. The white ring around their bill is far more distinct then the chestnut neck ring which is only found on males and can only be seen at close range.

Lots of ring-bill ducks on a cold winter day ~~ very little open water on Lake Champlain hence they are conjugated in small area near the docks.
