Zoomed in on this mother duck and her 4 young as we were paddling in Lavérendrye. She seemed to be smaller than a Mallard. We looked in the book and the closest we could come was Canvasback. Edit: More likely: Ring-necked Duck.

Very interesting - is that a faint, white band on its bill?

Yes, I believe so. Our guide to Quebec birds, with its range maps puts the emphasis on the Ring-necked.

A fem. Gadwall? or a female Redhead? (Petersons)

Check, with the eye ring.
