"Twillick" sighting: shot by Litehouseman on flickr

Twillick (Greater Yellow Legs)

These amusing shore birds are often referred to as "twillicks" in rural Newfoundland. Of course, they do indeed have long skinny yellow legs, which gives rise to the expression "she has legs like a twillick"!

You will have to go to this Flickr page by and see the beautiful photograph of a Twillick there by Litehouseman .


The word of the week this week here at REDEFiNE iT: Dictionary of Newfoundland English is Twillick .
