      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 .

The "Broad-winged" (Rough legged?)

Simply a beautiful bird!...I watched this one for half an hour this morning hovering over the vast fields of the Sax-Zim bog and was fortunate that it lighted in a tree about 50 yards away "poseing" for me grin.....(digiscoped)

I've been seeing a lot of hawks down there lately. Still no owls though. Yesterday a hawk was by the sod farm and dove down on the shoulder of the rode to catch a mouse. By the time I pulled up the mouse was being swallowed and I forgot to take my lens cap off...lol I missed it.

Great shots!

Thanks Jay....I hear you on the hawks down in the bog....quite a few for sure!.....I'm not a hawk ID expert but after looking at the Sibleys here a few minutes ago, I think this hawk is a "rough legged"....geesh these hawks are hard to tell apart! grin.......oh well....it's a nice hawk none the less grin.....I did use a "mouse squeeker" to keep this hawk somewhat interested while I snapped images....guess it worked! grin

jonny, those do look like rough legged. They always look like they are ready to lay an ostrich egg. Nice shots and thanks for the tip on the mouse squeeker, never thought about that.
