      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 .

Red-bellied woodpecker

Recommended Posts

I know they are supposed to be in central MN but I am up in the Biwabik area and have had a female Red-Bellied woodpecker coming around for the past couple of weeks. Is there any thing different that I can put out for her (besides seeds and suit)? I have never seen one before this and kind of like having her around.

Thanks for any input.....

Speaking only for the red-bellies being fed here, the only other thing these seem to like is plucking kernels of corn from the ear corn feeder. May not be real feasible there but that's one other thing they like at our feeders. Others may have different experiences.

Thanks Dotch...

I couldn't find any corn still on the ear so I picked up some deer corn. She doesn't seem to mind. She has been taking and hiding it non-stop since I put it out. My old man says they might go for nuts or acorns as well. I think I will give that a try too. She sure does like the corn though.

Thanks again for the tip.

Your old man is probably right about the nuts. The red-bellied woodpeckers love acorns over at our other pasture but between them, the blue jays, the squirrels and the sheep, there aren't many left to pick up and feed over the winter. Glad to hear she likes the corn! grin

Sorry Paul.. No pics. The only red bellied woodpecker i have seen has left the building. She hasn't been here for the past two days anyways. If she comes back I will see what i can do though.

The last one gives us an interesting view of the reason he is called a red-bellied. Beautiful eye on the first. Whenever I get a red-bellied, he has his eyes closed.
