      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 .

Night Bird ID...

Recommended Posts

A "peep" call last night, for hours until the storm hit. It was hot and humid, and this bird was peeping for hours...any idea what it is?

Go to 1:28 thru 1:38 of video; you can hear it.

I also have no idea what the "camera noise" is...static? Never had that before, and then it quits....

Nope. None of those. You guys must all be deaf...the peeps are distinct! Just quiet background, then one peep or squeak....then another, very soft... First one at 1:27, then one at 1:30, 1:32....a "peep" or :whistle", then a few more..turn up yer hearing aids! Or get  a computer with decent sound technology!

Looks like the experts on here can't do it, either.

I did a "Google Boy" imitation and tried to find night calling birds in Minnesota. The only thing I came up with that might be a possibility is a mockingbird. As the name implies, they have a wide range of vocalization.

Did that too, Roony....and whip-poor-wills---you name it. I'm stumped. I still think it's some type of swallow or flycatcher; can't tell ya why I feel that. Gonna talk to a chick I know at the nature center here in a couple days and see what she thinks.I've only heard it when it's warm at night...thought at first it was a frog or peeper, but then it called as it flitted by. I even thought about flying squirrels ans some type of bats...heard all their calls, too...I'm stumped. Warm, humid at night....skeetos were out, and bugs last night...that might bring out a certain bug eating bird......hmmmm....I'm working on it!!

    • FANtastic! Congrats Donbo!   No bird for me today, hopefully tomorrow  
    • I will get one they will come over the brook and I will be waiting.
    • On Friday morning I decided to take the scenic way home from work and stopped at Browns Creek, just north of Stillwater, to shake off the dust on my trout equipment. Wasn’t any signs of life in the stream! I’m wondering if the DNR wasn’t able to stock it before the opener due to the snow conditions?    Saturday morning I ventured down to the Vermillion River. I personally don’t care much for this river, as I don’t think it’s any good. But I a bible study in Rosemount in the afternoon, so I figured I’d give it a go. Water was high, fast and dirty. Didn’t catch anything. Neither did anyone else I talked to.   Not the start to the trout season I had hoped for 
    • Just a matter of time then I would think. One of them will make a mistake and end up down the end of your gun barrel. It would keep my faith up just knowing there are that many around. Good luck.      
    • Hakuna matata on my deck
    • BBD!  More to come...
    • Bought from private seller; my mistake should have been one thing to check; there is no wiggling it at all, it’s frozen in there tried torching it to no avail; put everything back together hoping I could grease and crank up and down but the zerk keeps coming off, and now it doesn’t lower at all; will have to bite the bar and bring it in
    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
