This male nested on a channel marker on the Western Branch of the Lynnhaven River near Thurston Point. The male is banded with a purple band with the characters 45 over A. The female is banded with 44 over A. The nest was documented with eggs in April 2013 when we caught both adults. Within a few weeks the nest failed, likely because of repeated disturbance from recreational water skiers who were photographed repeatedly circling the nest. The adults maintained their breeding territory throughout the spring and summer but did not attempt to breed again in 2013. Thurston foraged on the Lynnhaven River, Broad Bay, and in the ocean off of Fort Story.
