No need to apologize, we all overlook things and miss some IDs every now and then!
Ashley is correct - I thought the bills were dark and should have looked closer. Sorry for the wrong ID
These are actually both redheads. You can see the back one has a lighter bill with a black tip. Canvasback have a solid dark bill.
The back one is potentially a Canvasback, but the front bird is a Redhead. Canvasback have dark red eyes, the bird has a yellow eye, making it a Redhead.
naturelover0224 is correct
It looks like a Canvasback
