    Most likely a Ring-necked Duck (Aythya collaris).....yeah, I know, there's no ring on its neck.  But there you go...the ring on its bill, however, is quite prominent which is a key characteristic.  BTW...the eye isn't supposed to be red either...but there you go.  Maybe he was out late drinking last night.

    Dunno if you have the necessary equipment but you can achieve stop action of the wings simply.  I shoot at 600+mm focal length, ISO 640, 1/200th at f/25.  Flash is set to manual exposure at 1/32nd of full power.  This will yield a flash duration of 1/10,000th seconds which will freeze the wing action.  If you don't have 600mm, shoot the longest focal length you have which will render the background a nice blur.  Put camera on tripod, maximum focal length, frame the setting and fire camera remotely from a distance.  I'm pretty sure the D3300 can be controlled with an app from your cell phone.
