Definitely not an Eastern Kingbird, that has a clear white tip to the tail in all ages. Eastern Wood Pewee for me.

First one looks like a fancy breed domesticated pigeon (derived from Rock Dove). Second, I'd agree with leucistic Blue Tit; leucism can be heritable, so it may be a whole brood that is affected.
