Can someone identify the variety of this young duck?

    Ok finally got word. A young female Ruddy duck. Unfortunately they are diving eaters and don't walk on land very well. They require water for take-off and mistake asphalt for water and then can't get going again. That would explain where she was found. Trying to find a rehabber now.
