Both birds were in a small group of diving ducks, with Ruddys and Ringnecks on one of the ponds as we got closer to the highway. Clearly seen thru a scope, but too far for an reasonable photo. We were able to ID the birds as different from the Ringnecks, with the much lighter bill color, lack of ring on bill, and much lighter back coloration. The flatter head shape made me comfortable that they were greaters.
