      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

Recommended Posts

These are so-o-o-o sweet. And there is nothing sweeter than a ruby-crowned. The light makes them wonderful.

The photo is not a Ruby-crowned Kinglet but instead its a Orange-crowned Warbler. Nice photo.

You may be correct Mike and if so I stand corrected. There's a lot of similarities bewteen them including their phyical size and also foraging habits.

Dang Hoagie,

Why don't you just shatter their hopes and dreams while you're at it?

Might as well call out their Mamas too.

Raider4ever, your post is confusing to me, are you joking around or are you disappointed that Mike H. is helping to make an accurate identification of the bird?

ShawnZ,

Ya got me, yes I am dissapointed Mike is going out of his way to do what he does better than anyone I know, ID birds. Either that or....Mike and I go back to elem. school. We played against each other in high school. We were roomates at MN-Crookston, we were best men at each other's weddings. We are both from the same 'hood and I just found out he is registered on this site so I was just giving him a shout-out by "doggin' him". The game has gone on between us since time began.

Stu, I agree with Mike on the ID, not that he needs backup from me. He is the pro on bird ID.

That final image in the first series in particular is excellent, with the live protein ready to be swallowed, and the taut pose in the image you added later is excellent. Nice light as well. gringrin

If you saw a kinglet next to an orange-crowned warbler, you'd defininitely notice a size difference, with the kinglet being smaller. I also seem to recall the r-c kinglet has an eye ring that appears more broad than the o-c warbler.

I totaly appreciated Mike coming to the plate with the correct ID!!! wink

Although I have spent much of my life in the great outdoors, I certainly do not profess to an expert when it comes to bird ID.
