      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 .

Not a falcon, worked with so many of those at MAYO.  Hard to tell me....maybe a kestrel, or if bigger, a Coopers...I have a family of those here. Only way for me to tell them apart from sharp-shinned is their distinct cry....KAKKAKKAK ....sound familiar??

Besides I don't think peregrines hunt stuff on the ground.  Pretty much birds are their diet so far as I know.   

You would be absolutely correct, Del-o-wicious.

Looks like a Cooper's to me, but sounding like a broadwing, maybe you got both hanging around?  Definitely not a falcon though. 

The mass migration of the broadwings is really something to see.  Years ago had one go over my city bus route in SE Iowa;  I lost count in the midhundreds in the air all at the same time, soaring on the thermals and I wasn't half done.   I never saw anything quite like it since.

The hawk migration south has definitely begun for this year, too.   On the road this past week, I saw quite a number of them on fence posts and soaring. 

Still some turkey vultures around, but they should be leaving very soon, too.  It seems to me that years ago they didn't come quite this far north, at least not in the numbers we are seeing now.

Vocalizations: Birds of prey are not typically vocal, but Cooper's hawks will use a rapid, sharp “keh-keh-keh-keh-keh-keh” call alarmed or aggressive, as well as a high pitched whistle when threatened or in distress.

Sharp Shinned left......  Coopers right. 

I see them about once a week here.

I know. I've had a nest of Cooper's in my tree that have driven me nuts all Spring/Summer with their KAK KAK KAK KAK.....

I just watched "mine" land in a tree crotch that had a small squirrel on the other side......squirrel was giving it's "whine" distress call, and sidling around the tree, directly across from hawk. This went on for ten minutes; surprisingly, the hawk just flew away...couldn't get a vid; tree had too many leaves.

    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
