Its got to be just the head shape which is making me confused, taken by a friend in Rio Lagartos, Yucatan.

I agree with Adam; this is a female Redhead.

Female-plumaged Redhead; all female dabbling ducks have patterned feathers; virtually all female diving ducks do not. It's pretty straightforward.

Thanks I did think Redhead, but I was told it wasn't found in this area so it arose my suspicions.

Thanks for your input
