This is a Merganser. I believe it is a type of duck, but one that isn't as common in these parts as the mallards I've shown you on a few occasions. There were several of them around some rocks in Mill Creek when my husband and I were at Rooks Park over the weekend. (Credit to my husband for this photo.)

Hey...cool....I grew up calling that plant "snake grass", too, on our farm in Iowa. We used to take it apart and play with the pieces....use them for money or whatever. Imaginations at work. I finally found "snake grass" in a plant book or online under the name of "horsetail", I think.
