OK, have photo and all info on my hen

by Andrea
(northern suburbs IL)

This beautiful hen was nesting in my yard, black beak, black eye stripe, white tail feathers, speckled brown/yellowish feathers. All eggs hatched yesterday and the empty nest has remnants of yellowish eggs. I'd love to know who she is. We are in northern IL, though she looks like a female pintail that would be out of normal range. Thank you so much for any help.
