Banded Dotterels tūturiwhatu (Charadrius bicinctus ssp. bicinctus) are a medium sized shore bird that nests on beaches and braided riverbeds throughout New Zealand. The birds are endemic to New Zealand, and are classified as vulnerable, as a result of predation and disturbance of their nesting sites.
