Got it. The second one is a Marbled Teal (Marmaronetta angustirostris),

the second is definitely not a Wigeon and you should have a separate spotting for it and list as an Unknown. I know I've seen it before but someone might be able to get it before me. It's the black bill, not too many species of ducks have black bills.

pass on that not a Fulvous Whistling Duck but it's not a wigeon. Still trying to find it. I know I've seen them before.

You should separate the other bird because it is not a Wigeon. It's a
Fulvous Whistling Duck (Dendrocygna bicolor)
