      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 .

Rare visitor

I understand this Black-throated Blue Warbler is quite rare this far south. My friend down the street informed she had one in her yard. I had never heard of them before, so I headed over there this morning, and there he was. Unfortunately, all the shots were taken against the sun, thus the poor quality. But, considering they were at the edge of her yard, it couldn't be helped. Anyway, I just thought it was a bit unique.

Sweet captures of an unusual species, Mike. B-Th-B warblers nest up here in the Arrowhead and into Ontario and points east, and generally migrate farther east through Wisconsin on their southern and northern migratory routes.

Some are spotted most years in a scattering of states from Minnesota on south and all the way west to California, almost always during fall. They are considered "rare to casual" off their typical migration and nesting routes. Almost all western states show records in double figures, with California for some reason showing over 600.

That's not to take anything away from your excellent captures of a bird not often seen in your neck of the woods. Excellent sighting, excellent work!
