      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 guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
