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.
