      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 .

Bird Cam

Recommended Posts

I know some may find this strange but next summer I would like to try and insert a camera into a bird house to either view and or better yet, view and record the goins on inside the bird house.

Looking for any advise on a start for a product search.

Hawk Eye Bird Cam at about $70 will do the job for you. Most other alternatives are considerably more money.

Ice women, I am not sure of the link or web adress but if you search for the "Fargo Perigan Falcons" you will find a link to their web cam and has some ideas on cams. Good Luck.

PS, Fargo, ND has had a nesting pair of Peragins' on top of the Bank of the West Building for years. One of the best sites to get a looksee is the top of Wells Fargo bank, unfortunatley not everyone can just walk up on the roof of a bank. I got a pretty dirty look from the guys there when I brought my camera bag with me when I did some Satellite Dish work for them. Othere wise you can see them from the Island Park Parking ramp.

icewoman, I'd suggest making a birdhouse that will work for the camera. Don't know what birds you're looking at, but a slightly oversize house will be best so there's still room for the camera, and I'd also suggest some sort of translucent top or one with a plexiglass insert to let in some light. The light coming in through the entrance hole may not be enough.

The folks at Nature Vision (AquaVu) once had a Bird camera mounted to a feeder. As Steve suggested, perhaps build the nest box around the camera. If you went the aqua-vu route, you would have IR option for low light condition. Might be able to find a salvageable one on hsolist or hsolist.

The Hawkeye camera is a low light camera that is designed around a bird house. I think it looks like a great set up for your use.

    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.
