I am eagerly awaiting their return to Ontario. ;))
i love those legs. awesome little guy. ( :
Ptaki są płochliwe, ale byłaś cierpliwa i zrobiłaś bardzo ładne zdjęcia ptakom. Pozdrawiam.Birds are skittish, but you were patient and did a very nice pictures birds. Yours.
The Yellowlegs snipe is a handsome bird! You have caught him in his essence in natural surroundings.
Those are some yellow legs. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
Good series. I'll take the last picture is very good :))a kiss.
Lovely bird! Yellowlegs such an appropriate name.
So very nice photos!Good dayCrissi
Looking at those pretty yellow legs, ZZ Tops Hot Legs came to mind!
I love your birds!!!
Nice colored legs......and good pictures.Greetings Joop
Morning, wow!!!! those are some sexy yellow legs, never seen that bird before....love the little fellow, looks shy.....Blessings Francine.
Finally I get to see a REAL Snipe! Growing up we used to go Snipe hunting at night...it was just a game, as there really were no Snipes...a fact I didn't find out until later! Oh well, it was a great adventure, and kept us busy for hours!
I was under the same impression as Darcie - that the snipe was not real. They have really interesting feathers.
Haha. Love yellow legs! :)
Dearest Theresa,Its yellow legs really is unique and makes it look really lovely♡♡♡ Oh, Snipes are shy ones, even for you!Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
The first, for some reason, makes me think of Twiggy in yellow tights and the snipe made me chuckle. It was a childhood tradition to take folks 'snipe' hunting at night and leave them...
Gee, I wonder how it got that name? I don't mean the Greater or Lesser part. Great shots, Tex! :-)
Such lovely lanky legs!! You must have been so very quiet to have so many of these nice shots!!
And I always thought the Snipe was a made up bird to mess around with rubes going on a midnight "Snipe Hunt"Which is it?http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Snipe+Hunt
Greater Yellowlegs is a perfect name. Those legs almost glow. Great shots of both birds.
Wow - we just don't have birds like that around here.
I love these pictures. I've never seen this one before.
First time viewing a snipe.. great capture.
"Am I shy?""no. This is not my day.""I see a monster keep staring at me."
Oh, nice shots here! Just love those bright yellow legs!!
I wonder what kind of camera you have...
that last shot is great. i have not seen one of these before. i like the stripes. i took a bird shot yesterday, sitting on the roof of the car next to me, shot it through the passenger side window. hoping you will reconizeit.
Gotta love those yellow legs!
so fashionable in those yellow fireman boots
Love the Yellowlegs, perfection.
Oh these are great Theresa! I have only seen one bird that may have been either a Snipe, or Yellow Legs, cannot remember. It is the one that gently bobs it's head almost constantly...fun to observe...and photograph~
What a cool bird, love those yellow legs. That wood in the pond kinda looks like a alligator.
Look at those long yellow legs!
love those yellow legs!
Them certainly are some yellow legs! I love the one where his legs are crossed...it tickled me
We get these guys in Central Alberta also. Noisy, but fun!
No hiding those legs. :)
It must be tempting to just spend the day pond watching, with all the special visitors you get there. Those yellow legs are really...yellow!
Those are some mighty bright legs.
Oh! I love this bird. He should be given a name. What personality shows through!
What talent! Better than National Geographic.
Nice pictures you show of some beautiful birds :)
I haven't seen a snipe for...forever! When I was growing up on the farm, I loved to hear their call in the evenings.
Good series. Nice birds!
The Pond is a bird magnate!
LOve that one with her legs crossed! Looks like she was striking a model's pose for you.
First time seeing that bird. So graceful.
Did these come to your ranch? Such a treat! You were able to get some great shots of them. Those yellow legs are something else.
Great name for a bird with yellow legs!
He certainly has yellow legs!
He can't hide with those yellow legs!Love the shot of him sitting and looking at his reflection.
What a pert looking bird. Very nice series including the elusive one at the end.
A beautiful series of shots!
Great serie of photos!Lovely birds!
The last two look very close to the Woodcock. They have a mating ritual that's awesome.
I'm astonished that you get shore birds up there.
I love those "legs" so yellow. You did well to get shots of any Snipe TWG, thay are all so shy.
Die ben ik nog niet tegen gekomen maar hij is wel heel erg mooi.
A really neat looking bird. Love his yellow legs!
Wow, what a cute bird! Those legs are stunning!
Those yellow legs are a. making me laugh with delight, b. making me be in awe at nature's wonders, and c. making me again be amazed at your talent for photographing these guys (& gals)!!
Love those legs. I was sure you were going to say the only way to know the difference between the lesser is the legs are lesser, lol ;)
Humm I wonder why they call it Yellowlegs. Hee hee
What a great series T!
A fine series!! I like the third one, with the crossed legs:) The last pics of the snipe are really good.
A great series indeed! Love those yellow lege!!
He looks like a fashion plate with his bright yellow skinny jeans!! Made me smile!!
The markings on the elusive Wilson's Snipe are beautiful and I adore those golden-yellow legs on the "Greater".
Dearest Theresa,That is a beautiful wader.I'm feeling like a water bird too; non-stop every 10 minutes our 6-gallon wet vac needs to be emptied... Pieter's workshop is being flooded. Mopping up with a cloth as well. We pray for a break; rain has stopped but the water still comes in. In need for broader gutters with more pipes down to keep them from running over. We're so exhausted; no sleep...Hugs,Mariette
Such dainty legs. A really cute bird.
Nice! You have so many beautiful visitors!
Those are the yellowist legs I've ever seen!
He looks like he's admiring himself in the water...or checking to make sure every feather is in place.
Love the flashy yellow legs! Nice pics of that dandy and of the shyer snipe.
Oh, I love those legs! ;)
Gorgeous photos -- I agree the legs sure pop out at you!
Hi Theresa, The Yellowlegs always makes me smile.. Guess it's those long, skinny YELLOW LEGS... ha haThanks for sharing.Hugs,Betsy
Look at those legs! Aren't they super! Great shots Theresa!
Great photos of the Yellowlegs and the Snipe. Your pond is a very special place to attract so many different birds.
He/she looks like a model in high heels.
T, Wow, great images! You sure get some great sightings in your yard!
Great shots of the Yellowlegs and cool sighting of the Snipe.
So SNIPS really are real...!Linda*♥´¨) ¸.-´¸.-♥´¨) ¸.-♥¨) (¸.-´ (¸.-` ♥♥´¨http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com http://deltacountyhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com
Love the YellowLegs, especially the third picture . . . hilarious . . .
great birds both of them. Love the bright yellow color on the yellowlegs. :)
Really great photos of the beautiful birds!!
Great visitor you have again and can get some pictures.Yes it was hit but they did tracking and could after some work see that it wasn´t hit bad. Hope to see them again soon.
You have so many different species of birds where you are Tex.I am not familiar with the Snipe.. but it looks a beautiful bird.great close ups of it.Do they live close to your home!xx val
What wonderful birds to see. Your pond always seems to be a center of lots of interesting activity!
Ahhh...the rewards of having a pond!!!...:)JP
Snipes are real??? I thought it was something made up, to send poeple on "snipe hunts". Shows what I know.
Gee wonder how it got its name?! haha I love these photos again of a bird I've never seen.
Beautiful yellow legs.
Excelentes fotografias de bela Ave....Cumprimentos
I would say that Yellow Legs was adequately named:@)
It certainly lives up to its name! Beautiful little bird! I don't see anything like that at the lake. I don't think I've ever seen a snipe, either.
ooohhh t, i love those legs!!and how on earth did you find a picture from 2010??
Wow the snipe blends right in but you can really spot Mr. Yellow legs. great shots.Felicia
How cute! I don't see any of them around here. I saw a lesser yellowlegs in Alaska and took a photo of it.
Lovin' those legs!!
That third picture with his legs crossed is priceless. And then these is the one just a bit further down where he looks like he is tiptoeing through the tulips. What a great series. genie
Evening Tex I am late today it was a busy one. I love the little yellow legs. Great shots. Hug B
Those yellow legs almost don't look real!
Oh yes, love those yellow legs. The snipe was a shy fellow but looks like he couldn't completely elude your camera.
Snipe are hard enough to find - let alone photograph. I think that the last picture is a bit better than a 'record shot"Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.Stewart M - Melbourne
Hi Theresa, My congratulations on the nice sighting and outstanding shots of this Yellow Legs. I have never seen one before. Have a wonderful rest of the week!
How beautiful a bird!Cheers from Cottage Country!
I have a hard enough time visually distinguishing similar species. I don't know what I'll do if I have to determine by their call. Great photos.
What variety of poses!

'These legs are made for walkin', and that's just what they'll do...'
They camouflage so well, but for those yellow legs it would have been hard to spot.
I don't know why (ya think it was the legs?) but he made me think of Big Bird. He's much cuter than BB, tho! Beautiful shots.
Love those Yellowlegs!
What a beautiful bird, those legs are really something. I want boots that colour!
Love seeing both of them. Wonder how the yellow-legged one got its name? ;) So many pretty birds.
You certainly get some great birds there Theresa.
I love his yellow legs! And the snipe has beautiful markings. I love seeing these unusual beauties. Great shots. xx
Great pics of the beauties around you!
Beautiful bird! The legs are stunning and stylish the way it stood there :)
Another one I've never seen before- great captures!
those snipes really BLEND! Great captures!
You have the coolest birds come to visit you! Love those yellow legs and his little pal the snipe too! :)
Great (yellow) legs! :-)
Appropriately named I would say!
Great series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
LOVE the shot where he's standing legs crossed .. what a cutie
Love those gorgeous yellow legs! :)
A couple of great water birds to have around! Wonderful shots of two of may favorites!
She would look great on a bird modeling runway with those legs!
Nice assortment of poses of the yellowlegs. That call is indeed distinctive, and the slightly upturned bill is also characteristic of the Greater. Your patience was rewarded by getting open views of the snipe!
Very preety bird!!Amazing shots as always Tex!!Dimi..
I am simply amazed at all the gorgeous bird species that visit your pond! Lucky you!~Lindy
I'd be in trouble as I have a hard time recognizing bird calls.
Snipes or woodcocks are one of my favorite birds! I guess I adore them because they are so cute and so shy and hard to find. The yellow legs, though is great too! He reminds me a lot of a snipe. You got some great pictures of both!
The Greater Yellowlegs are much larger than the Lessors and have that slight up-turned bill.Love the Wilson's Snipe Tex.
Very nice! Yet another great bird that we don't have out here. Nice photos!
I love the Greater Yellowlegs. I have not seen one myself, but it's my kind of bird. lovely
Wow! Yellow legs alright. Love seeing another new wader. That's exciting you saw the snipe too.
Looks like a gawky teenager. I've been trying to feed and water the birds this winter and am noticing more varieties checking in. Wish I knew more about them.
The Lessers and Greaters can be confusing. Never got why they called them Yellowlegs;)
They are both such beautiful birds....
