NounEdit

pinionists pl ‎(plural only)

  1. (poetic, nonce word) winged creatures
    • William Browne
      He sung the outrage of the lazy drone
      Upon the lab'ring bee, in strains so rare,
      That all the flitting pinionists of air
      Attentive sat, and in their kinds did long
      To learn some note from his well-timed song.
