Spring Ducklings

I believe these to be Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) but if I am wrong I don’t mind being corrected, I do have trouble with female duck ID at times and I appreciate all the help I can get with them.

I photographed this family of ducks at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area in northern Utah earlier this spring. The duckling in the front seems more adventurous than its siblings. The clouds in the sky were reflected on the water and I found that very appealing.
