Bird ID help please (MN)

Spring in Minnesota brings a return of all the birds. Robins, geese, ducks, blackbirds of all kinds different raptors etc... I've seen these guys in the pond in the back yard but I do not know what they are. They are about half the size of the mallards they were hanging out with.
