3 More birds from the Las Vegas, Nevada, area. Please help!

What are those 3 birds in the back? I believe the rest of the pictures show a closer look of these same 3 birds. I could not find any match in the Duck section of Peterson's Guide.
Is the Muscovy Duck a domestic variety? ABA Lifer List does list the Muscovy Duck. Can I include this bird in my Lifer's list if I want to adhere to ABA's rules?
Thank you very much for any help!

The two facial lines on the bird in photo #2 reminds me of Pacific Black Duck. (It would still be a captive bird, obviously!)
Or a Domestic Silver Appleyard Duck. Like I said, these birds have a variety of domestic breeds in them.

The short answer is no. Here is the link to the ABA rules page. Refer to Rule 2; http://www.aba.org/bigday/rules.pdf
