Sometimes they do have an orange cast. Hayman, Marchant, and Prater's
Shorebirds actually uses the term orange-yellow to describe their legs.

Hi Tweeters,
I thought I was looking at Yellowlegs and Dowitchers at Ridgefield N W R
yesterday afternoon. Do some individual Yellowlegs have strong
orange-yellow coloration -- on the legs?
