Oystercatchers are large, noisy birds, with strong bills used for smashing or prying open mollusks, or pointed bills used to dig for worms.
These shorebirds live on coasts all over the world, except for the polar regions. They are all-black, black and white, or brown and white in appearance.
There are eleven species, including the Chatham Islands Oystercatcher which is critically endangered.
