Moved from Leafhoppers.

Moved for Confirmation

Fully winged...

Yes, I know its winged
I know it has wings, but I was wondering if it might be a young individual that is still getting its colors in, or maybe a pale individual. There is a photo from I think AZ that shows a pale specimen. I should have used a different word than immature; that's my birder part of the brain at work.

It's entirely your call, but if the pics were mine I'd move them pending expert examination. Who knows--it could be something new and exciting. :)

 
Ok
I'll move them and see what Hamilton says
