South Island pied oystercatchers breed only in the South Island, but disperse in winter to coastal areas throughout New Zealand. One of the largest wintering populations - around 16,000 birds - is found in the Nelson region. Despite their name, the bulk of an oystercatcher's diet consists of cockles and pipis.
