      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 .

Sorry about the large photos as I am learning how to process these photos to show on the internet and forums. I took these photos today after a graduation party I attended.

No just the female came. Did everyone notice that one of the young in the nest hole is upside down or has his neck twisted in a way the head is upside down. I just notice this while looking at the photo.

Excellent images, Mike.

I pulled the image onto my desktop, opened it in Photoshop and brightened it to bring out the shadow details, and that indicated the rear bird in the last image is not upside down. It just appears that way in the image as posted online. Further evidence that it's right-side-up includes the hint of red on its forehead and the bright tip of the upper mandible, both of which field marks match the other juvenile in the nest cavity.

That being said, I'll repeat that the images are excellent. Always good to see a veteran birder eventually pick up a camera and lens and express himself/herself visually. Birders who become photographers generally outstrip avian photographers who have no birding background. Sweet work, with no doubt more to come. smilesmile
