      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 .

First of all this is a horrible shot, I was not prepared to take any picures as I was driving down the road and almost ran him over, I grabbed this one shot with my 100-400 hanging out the window so it sucks and it is super cropped. I have never seen this bird before and my bird book is not here yet. Can anyone tell me what this critter is?

I found him in the nature conservetory birding area south of HWY 10 near the buffalo River. I will go back and try some better shots when I have time. They just burned the prarie down so in a few weeks there will be some awesome new blooming going on and should be very active. Anyway here he is:

Was Small, maybe 6-7" high, there were 2 of them.

That would be a Greater Yellow Legs.

I first thought a Lesser, but after reviewing pics of the two, this bird seems taller than 10".

Thanks LEP7MM, I did some looking online for the Greater Yellowlegs and you are correct. Thank You. I had just never seen one before, and since my picture didn't turn out very well I was not sure if someone would be able to recognize it.

The Greater and Lesser look very similar with the exception of the height difference between the two and the bill is slightly up-turned and longer on the Greater.

The two pics I have in a bird book shows slightly different markings on the head and neck, but I would guess there will be some variation from one bird to the next.

Paul, take a look at this post. Me and Johnnyredhorse took pictures of presumably the same bird since it was the same day, same lake, but we were there at different times. The over all opinion is that its also a Greater yellow leg.
