This book "Field Guide to Upland Birds and Waterfowl" is also another I use. It is not as good as the first one, though it does give a light amount of info about the bird and covers more than duck.
I personally think if you get these two books you will be set in the field; furthermore, I would also recomend a hard cover large book for home. This is not for identification, just simply to make your mouth water in the off season.

Google duck indent there is a ton of stuff available. DU has a decent one, but to identify ducks takes many years to be good at. I've found that wing beat and wing shape helps the most. Still pics help somewhat but when ducks are coming in early in low light situations it is a challenge.
Yep. Eventually you will find little tell tales that will let you know what kind of ducks are coming in and those tell tales will be different from one hunter to the next. To me widgeon look like they have a chubby rear end when they fly, canvasbacks are long and kind of hang their heads low, sprig use short rapid wing beats. I have a tough time with gadwall and mallards when I can't see their colors. With teal and ringneck they are both small and run at wide open throttle most of the time so once in a whileI still get surprises after the retrieve.
Real tractors have two cylinders and hand clutches.
My rifle is mine, it isn't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like.

I have been using the Ducks Unlimited App which is pretty cool with multiple photos, descriptions and Sounds.
