Red-winged Blackbird - leucistic

This leucistic Red-winged Blackbird was found April 25, in Ensley Bottoms, Shelby Co, TN. She was continually chased by male Red-wings and even other species. She found it necessary to feed out in a plowed field rather than the more productive nearby grassy field full of vetch.

I had an albino bird feeding during the snow and a little after, it was about the size of a sparrrow. Could it have been a bird of this type?
I'm on this page because I'm new to the area and put out feed for the birds this winter. The Red Finches are still coming to feed, sparrows, doves and mocking bird also. Want to know if I should continue to put out food. Also put out suet with seeds but have never seen any birds feed on it.
