Other News Around Town

2 Mexican Cities voted in the World’s Top 15 Cities

Mexico’s San Miguel de Allende is voted the World’s Top City based on a recent survey of Travel & Leisure magazine. “San Miguel is one of the most authentic, creative and cost-effective destinations we’ve visited,” says a T+L reader of the colonial city, a part of which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. “Over the years we’ve discovered more great restaurants and activities, but the town still maintains its Mexican heritage, culture and charm.”

Within the Top 15 cities, Oaxaca, located in southern Mexico, ranked as #6. Click here for the article.

Both cities are easily accessible from San Carlos’ nearest international airport in Hermosillo, and Ocean Camp San Carlos offers all-inclusive tours to both places during the snowbird season.

Tecalai Library: New Audio-Visual Center

There’s a new attraction for patrons of the Community Library at Tecalai. By the front door you can peruse the new Audio-Visual Center, with a large selection of Historical material, in DVD and VHS formats, dozens of Audio Books (great for road trips!) both contemporary and classical. New DVDs have been donated, including action-packed films and suitable family comedy films. For those into ‘scary’, there are dozens of Horror flicks. And more Music CDs. Audio-visual items are available at the Library for a small donation.

During the summer months, the Tecalai Library is open Fridays, 9am to 11am. The library is located just inside the entrance at the Tecalai-Yori Condominios on Hwy 124 (Beltrones Blvd) across from the beach and Conquistador Condominiums, next to Totonaka RV Park.

It’s an exchange library—bring a book, take a book, with no charge although donations are welcome and help support new improvements.

The summer volunteer librarians thank you for your patronage and support.

Fishing, Golfing & Birding Reports

Fishing Report

There are a number of dorado showing up. There are not a lot of boats fishing, but one that caught a few dorado claimed them to be around 16 pounds. We found a mess of them over a mile area 15 out on a 215. We kept a limit of bulls to 14 pounds. The males seem to beat out the smaller females. In close they have been seeing a few sails and catching a decent number of smaller dorado to 10 pounds. We did get one marlin four miles out.

The bottomfishing seems to have moved down off San Antonio. Some skipjack are in close. There’s not much other life out there besides a few turtles. We did have a shark of about 500 pounds quickly chomp through our line six miles out. The water is staying slightly cool, so hopefully we’ll continue to see some fish.

Diving Report

Some of the most colorful fish swimming around are parrotfish. There are five species that are commonly seen in the San Carlos area – azure, bicolor, bluechin, bumphead, and loosetooth. Parrotfish have a juvenile, initial, and terminal phase each with distinct colorations.

For example, bicolor parrotfish change from a two-tone red to a solid bluish green. Being hermaphrodites, the initial phase of the adult parrotfish is almost always female and she is usually less colorful. As she matures, these females can transform into a male changing to the more colorful blues and greens that are so characteristic of parrotfish.

Parrotfish secrete a mucous cocoon that surrounds their body at night to make them more difficult to be “sniffed” out by predators. Schools of parrotfish swoop down on reefs and rocks, using their parrot-like beak of fused teeth to scrape algae off of the reef. They get part of the reef, but their digestive system separates out the algae and passes on the ground rock – making sand.

The two photos above are of the initial (on left) and terminal (on right) phases of a loosetooth parrotfish.

Diving at Window Rock (El león echado) last Sunday, the water temperature was 82 degrees with about 40 feet of visibility. Large schools of fish, like Cortez and spottail grunts, sergeant majors, and yellow snappers, were passing through the plankton rich waters around the island. Window Rock is the taller of the two islands west of the Delfinario and south of condos Pilar and Delfin.

Whether you go diving or snorkeling, keep your eyes open for the multicolored parrotfish.

Birding Report

This week’s Bird of the Week is the Verdin. I chose this little bird because he is a year round resident and available to see for those still in San Carlos. In addition, he can sometimes be seen at feeders which is nice for those that like birds but don’t get out into the desert much.

The Verdin is among the smallest of the North American songbirds but most of the winter you will not hear that song. You will hear one loud insistent note. When it starts singing in the spring, it adds two more notes for a grand total of three. This link will lead you to a recording of both the song and the call.

Three notes doesn’t seem very song-birdy, but knows all. Perhaps you are wondering what is the difference between a song and call. Well, in a nutshell, songs are related to sex, usually performed by the male but not always, and happen during the breeding season.

Calls are performed by both sexes and are communication on various other topics. If you want to know more about this, here is a link to an amusing article by Jules Evans.

The Verdin falls in the classification (mine) of flitter. This is the opposite of the sitter. Flitters flutter about making it hard to photograph them, while sitters pose for me. However the Verdin is a constant vocalizer (one note) and the movement makes them easier to spot and if you are lucky enough to have one touch down at your feeder, you can also get a good view. Their little yellow-green head is quite a distinctive color and makes them quite spotable. They also have a tiny rufous patch on the wing but I find the head color is quite enough for an ID.

They like to eat very small insects found on leaves and forage mainly on the leaves of small desert trees and shrubs. They are found in the southwest part of the US and northern Mexico.

As always, if you have a question, please feel free to email me at Birding outings will resume in late October. Happy Birding to All.
