I dont think either of them are Smartweed or Japanese Millet.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

The first pic looks like Rumex (Curly Dock) which is in the polygonum family and the other looks like a Rush (Juncus) or Xyris. All decent wetland plants that provide food for ducks. The first pic could also be what is known as Nodding Smart Weed but without a seed head I can't tell you without the plant in hand. I hope this helps you out and let me know what you key them out to be.

The swollen nodes on the first tell you it's a smartweed, although Rumex is also a good guess based on the photo. Think smartweed is the call though.
Second pic is a spikerush, possibly an eleocharis, but hard to tell without knowing the size of the plant.
Both of these plants provide great forage for ducks.
