Hello Bud,

Although I understand the decision, this was unpleasant to read.

What is the policy at Sea-Tac and how would a similar or identical situation be handled? I would speculate that they will likely present there if the irruption continues.

An update on the owl.--it was at Honolulu International
Airport on Nov 24, not Nov 28. I have received a photo of the
bird, and it is undoubtedly a Snowy Owl, the first record for
the region.
