I believe they are both females. The males normally have a all black bill.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

 :yeah:

That would be my guess too.  The duck on the left has the drake markings on the tail, not full colored yet.

Shoot them both!
Gadwall is one of the few I still need for my collection.
