male, hybrid
The male might be a Hybrid Eurasian/American Wigeon as the head is whitish. The female appears to me to be an American.

I saw a definite Male hybrid in the Okanagan recently and he had the White rather than Buffy head patch.

Ottawa - I returned to the site below Parliament Hill to see if I could get a picture of this rare visitor on a sunny day. The weather cooperated and this time I was smart. I brought my zoom wide angle-short range telephoto for closeups as well as my longer lens. The bird did not disappoint. I had a ball with it for 45 minutes.

I think the female is also Eurasian, but difficult to tell for sure.
