Abstract: Purpose: The 2004 hurricane season significantly impacted portions of Florida’s coastlines and altered shoreline habitat for a wide variety of coastal organisms (Greening et al. 2006). Remotely sensed data can help characterize and assess these habitats and provide inferences on how hurricanes and subsequent coastal engineering practices affect the distribution and abundance of these species. This technical note focuses specifically on providing a better understanding of the requirements and limitations involved for mapping coastal bird habitat with respect to hurricane impacts. Recommendations are also made for conducting surveys to effectively monitor shoreline-dependent bird communities, since the geospatial data are specifically intended to supplement this effort.
