Green wing Teals have the white slash on the side and way smaller than the Pintail and Wigeon

You can see the light color on the top of the head and the green mask.

most of them look like northern pintails, on the last pic one of them looks like a common mallard, but I'm not sure, that part of the picture isnt very clear, awesome spotting, by the way! I really like the color pattern on northern pintails :)
