      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 .

Well guys, after lots of research, I finally got hooked up with the head naturalist at Oxbow Park in Byron, and Quarry Hill nature Center, Clarissa, thanks to my buddy Brian Taylor, DJ at KRPR. She does a weekly show for them, and this lady has to be the most knowledgeable naturalist I've ever met. She sat down and listened to the recording...and knew what it was immediately. Boy, were we all wrong! And ya, I was a mile off! Never thought of this, because I was sure it was a bird....NOT! Hard to tell with the storm going on just where it came from. Have heard it since, and she's right on the money!  So, what is it guys?  Hmmm? I'll divulge it after a couple guesses.....:/

Me?  You are the one saying he saw what turned out to be spring peepers flying by.

 

You must have gotten some special shrooms from Boar, or someone.

NO, I never said that, read my narrative above, again. I THOUGHT it was a bird; no actual flying stated. So, you have experience with mushrooms, I take it? Have you tried some of those amazon frogs ya can lick and get buzzed up on? Easy to catch; they don't fly...so I hear.  Oh wait; those are toads that get ya toasted... :P

"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?"

 

posted to birdwatching forum.  Oops it's not a bird, it's a frog.   And you think it's me...
