It’s clearly a sawbill duck spp, and a small one given the size of the other ducks. Assuming you’re in USA there are no other options (excepting escapes from wildfowl collections). Maybe Google Hooded Merganser and look through the images, ignoring adult males, obviously. I’ve no field experience of Hooded - extreme vagrant to this side of Atlantic - but juv/female looks right to me.
We have a lot of Mergansers in this area. I can't find any, or any images of Mergansers, Hooded or otherwise that look like this duck. I'm not saying they don't exist, I'm just saying I haven't been able to find any. Do you have a link that documents that? Besides two local bird rescues, The Audubon Society website and the Department of Natural Resource of Michigan website, I can not find that duck in any of their identification galleries.
