      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 .

Orioles and grosbeaks were in abundance here this spring and early summer, and now they've flown the coop. Where do they go during the heat of the summer? Maybe I should follow them. This sure is the dog days of summer. I've run out of birds to photograph. mad

Think the answer lies in what's going on in their lives during the stretch when they disappear. In this part of the state, they are rearing young and their diet changes from the sweets to insects, which they feed their young. Some will provide mealworm larvae and reputedly that keeps them coming to the feeders. Unfortunately here if I did that, the grackles, sparrows, and just about everything else would devour them too so it would probably be a losing proposition. There have been some orioles coming to our feeders again recently, and some of them appear to be youngsters. There are also male rose breasted grosbeaks feeding on the sunflower seed so not sure where they're coming from after an extended absence.

What Dotch said!

On a slightly different note, in the last couple of days we've seen our first female/immature hummers since they started nesting, so the mayhem at the nectar feeders will only start to grow through the latter part of the month, when they start to migrate.
