I also stopped at the Panton Rd. crossing of Dead Creek this morning.  In addition to the species reported by Steve Trombulak, I saw 2 Wood Ducks, 1 Gadwall, and a total of ~15 Green-winged Teal (scattered and moving about).

I couldn’t spend enough time at any one spot to do a head count for any species that was super abundant, but there were several nice finds among them all.
