reesetee commented on the word sea-chicken
Old North Carolina nickname for Spotted and other small sandpipers. Other nicknames include graybacks and maggot-eaters.
You ask me, I don't think the poor sandpipers deserve such names.

Now I know that you are pulling our legs. Everyone - even Jessica Simpson - knows that sea-chicken is tuna.
Ah, but that's what everyone thinks. Everyone, of course, except people living in parts of North Carolina during the early part of the 20th century. :-)
