      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

This guy and gal are located right outside the cabin door making for easy shooting. The only problem is the wind was blowing about 40mph all day yesterday. You will notice some with hints of branches some with out along with the shadows, they were blowing all over the place. This is a sequence of coming out of the nest and preening and back in we go.

I have a lot of preening shots as well, but this was more interesting.

#1 Checking to make sure nobody is around.


#2 Out and start preening.


#3 After a while back in we go.


#4 This fat body in that small hole?




#6 Almost back in.

Great sequence of shots! You'll have to get some pictures of babies when they start sticking their head of of the hole and screaming at the top of their lungs. Hope you don't like sleeping in late they sure can make a ruckus. We had a pair nest by our cabin one year and boy where they loud.
