Having a tough time with this one, I am hoping someone here can enlighten me! :D

I have seen this several times over that past month in Pitt Meadows between Swan-e-Set and McNeil Road on Rannie Road.

From today...

Yes and it's a juvenile note the tail. Juvies and adult females look alike but Juvies have that gray distal tip on their tail. Adult females have a dark subterminal band.
