How the physical habitat of Western Snowy Plovers has changed over time was investigated at Sand Beach, which is part of Coal Oil Point Reserve, from 1928 to 2004, using width area, and elevation data gathered from a series of aerial photographs. Measurements of the linear distance from high water line to the vegetation line at regular intervals and area were made on georeferenced photographs for each year a photo was available. The methods developed here can be applied to any beach and habitat for beach-dwelling shore-birds by making minor adjustments to beach boundary definitions
