Ringnecked Ducks

I don't think these are common in our area, I am contacting our local "bird people".
Saw these going over the bridge today on way to a tracking field. There were two pair. Very distinctive markings, especially on the bill of the male. Both male and female have the white ring at the back of the bill, the male another white marking on the front part. Pretty birds.
