Hi Peter and David,

It is not quite correct that every oystercatcher that you will see in NZ will be a SIPO as the Variable Oystercatcher, which is usually all dark like a Sooty, can also be black and white and every variation between. Most black and white Oystercatchers should be SIPOs but not all. There is also the Chatham Island Oystercatcher confined to that Island.
