      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 .

We may have been taking them for weeks, but mine don't look like that!!! Whoever thought a grackle could be that beautiful. And I love the female purple--she is so well framed.

Yep, they're starting to get a bit boring. whistle

Not really. Nice series, Ken. You sure can't complain about the sharpness on these, especially the Junco. I love the environment that you captured him and the Fox Sparrow in. That's certainly one advantage you northern folks have. Us southerners have to look hard to find a pine tree. grin

Geez, Ken, I know darn well you shot that environmental of the open water/ice on the lake from your own deck. Lazy Finns! gringringrin

Oh, BTW, when you gonna let that tame ruffed grouse out of its cage so it can drum some more? At least let it out when I'm there! Yikes, I'm dead now. Last favor I ever get from KPS. shockedshocked

Whoa! How many zingers did you get in one post! First of all, the poor ruffie has been workin' for me so hard the last couple of days he needed his rest - it's in his contract!

Secondly, not from my deck - I at least made it down to the other end of the lake! grin

Yeah, well, zingers have a way of circling around like boomerangs and hitting the launcher in the back of the head. No doubt the time will come when I feel blood dribbling down my neck. smilesmile

I have to really admire that image of the grackle too - that doesn't mean I have to like the real thing tho, does it? confused Really, they're all very pretty birds & images!

these are terrific!!!

I saw in the posts someone mentioning ruffed grouse while they were drumming, last spring I was lucky enough to find a male doing his thing, over and over and over,, lol it was funny to watch him, but then I didn't have the gear I have now, I will post the pics I got with my canon rebel xt for you to see,, it was dark, and wasn't able to get really what I wanted, I hope to come across some this spring
