      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 .

Shore birds.

Recommended Posts

This is all I managed to salvage from this trip. It's really disappointing, considering there were many more ops.

Great Egret.

Black Crowned Night Heron.

The nearest I can come to on this one is a Snowy Egret. However, they're not found anywhere near this part of the country, but I can't find any other shore birds this size with black legs and yellow feet. It's much smaller than the egret.

These are nice, Mike. And the third bird is a snowy egret. Sibley shows them nesting as far north as northern Iowa and extreme southern Minnesota, with sightings fairly often in recent years farther north.

Thanks guys.

Steve, thanks for confirming the identity of the snowy egret. I use 2 books for ID's, one with photos and one with colored drawings. Unfortunately, they're outdated by over 20 years, regarding geographic info.

Paul, I didn't even make the decison to go until 9:30 in the morning. I figured you'd already be at work and wouldn't be able to just up and leave. BTW, none of these photos were from the NWR, which really doesn't amount to much. I drove the backroads around Waubay, to find the wildlife.

Ya I agree on the SIbleys. I have had mine now for just over a week or so and I love it. I never knew the names of most of the birds in my own back yard so it has been fun reading it. I can't wait to get home tonight so I can fiugre out what kind of bird I shot today on some [PoorWordUsage] dunk gravel road. It was half Black, half Yellow, and looked like a red winged black bird but had a complete yellow head and black body. Heck of a set of vocal cords on him too.
