Your second photo shows a juvenile Greyish Saltator, Saltator coerulescens. They are within range - http://ebird.org/ebird/map/grasal1?neg=t...

I spoted another flycatcher today, in the same place (look at second photo), and I think is the same species as the leucistic one. I saw them together today, so it must be a gragarious species. Although it resembles Tachyphonus and Saltatore, none of this live in the area.

Leucistic Tachyphonus coronatus ?

Whatever it is, it's highly leucistic. Leucism is sort of like a lesser case of albinism. The pigment in the feathers is decreased or absent.
I'd guess the bird is a Saltator of some sort.
