It's just something you learn as you go. You can't be expect to reliably ID every duck on the wing before some exposure in the field, despite what the blowhards say.
If you go and watch ducks in the spring, don't just put the binos on them and identify them, watch them take of and land, watch how they fly in a group. If you get close enough, look for distinguishing shapes, not colors, you can't count on seeing those colors early in the season.
