[Tweeters] SE Owls Hovering

My recent trip to the West 90 in Skagit County resulted in a lot of images of one particular owl doing a lot of hovering while hunting. Some of these hover episodes lasted more than 10 seconds before it either dove or flew onward. I'm aware that SEO's hover while hunting but this seemed a bit extreme. Over an hour or so, without realizing it, I shot more than 175 images of this behavior, some quite good ( https://www.flickr.com/photos/125370117@N08/ ). There was a mild breeze blowing that might have helped. Have others seen this lengthy hovering by SEO's at the W. 90 or other places?
