Other News Around Town

New vocational / technical school opens in Guaymas

Rod Schwartz and Gary Orman, two very generous engineers from Arizona, approached Castaway Kids to become involved in building a 6 classroom technical focused school in the Punta Arena area of Guaymas to help improve the lives and opportunities of our local Mexican community.

Centro Ocupacional Club Jerry officially opened on September 12. Club Jerry Tech, as it is known, held a ribbon cutting event attended by many. Cutting the ribbon were Lorenzo de Cima, the Mayor of Guaymas, Jerry Donovan (of Club Jerry), Sonia Lopez and Juan Cordero, two of the Club Jerry Tech board members, Sandra Sarraga, the school’s Directora and Lindy Watts from Castaway Kids.

On Dia de Independencia (September 16), Club Jerry Tech celebrated the first class of its 2 year Electronic Technician program. This is the first phase of a 6 year program designed to be taken in 3 segments of two years each. These classes are open to anyone over 14 years old and are being taught on Saturdays so that people working or attending school can attend.

The cost of the classes is 500 pesos per month but there is financial assistance available. Each 2 year segment will result in a diploma and the following 2 year session will build on the skills already learned. The primary subjects in the first program are electronics, mathematics, administration, professional ethics, information systems and English. These courses are being taught by local instructors.

Of course we would be interested in hearing from anyone in our community who has some Spanish speaking skills and who would like to consider becoming involved and bringing their expertise in any of these areas.

Now that the first program is underway, the intent is to introduce at least one more technology focused course at the school by the end of this year with others to follow.

Fishing, Golfing & Birding Reports

Fishing Report

I returned to expectations of some improved fishing! I didn’t find them. It seems like the same thing, with the size of ‘big’ dorado down to 5 pounds. A lot of the dorado were barely a couple pounds and the skipjack around 1 pound. There are a few larger dorado offshore, and some 1-3 miles out.

Supposedly there are some bonita and Sierra around. Billfish still seem sparse. We had a bite and a couple were seen. One friend went 25 out for one dorado. We made it that far for the only other offshore report. That made up the fishing fleet for the weekend. Water temp was 87, clear, with comfortable temps. Don’t go jogging though, I wouldn’t recommend that.

The bait seems very sparse. A few flying fish is all that I have seen. We barely saw a few dolphin and a couple turtles. Break out the trout rods and run lures less than 4″ in close. I would fish 25+ miles out, but a few fish were reported closer. We’ll keep at it. It can only get better.

Diving Report

There is an interesting group of invertebrates that are all related – sea anemones, jellies, corals, sea fans, and hydroids called cnidarians (the “c” is silent). They all share some type of stinging cells to capture prey…and sometimes tag the unsuspecting swimmer, snorkeler, or diver.

ome people think that sea fans are plants, but they are a group of animals living together. Most are very colorful – reds, yellows, oranges, whites – and attach themselves to the rocky bottom. If you dive a little deeper (60+ feet), you may see “fields” of yellow polyp black coral that are quite beautiful.

Sea anemones are another favorite of divers. They, too, come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and textures. One of my favorites is the Beebe anemone (pictured on left). It appears to be a small pile of gelatinous balls during the day, usually guarded by a couple of arrow crabs. Don’t touch it – it has a nasty sting that lasts several days. But if you go on a night dive, you may see the Beebe anemone fully extended with its tentacles reaching for mysids to pull into its mouth to eat.

Orange cup corals (pictured on right) can be found at several sites around San Pedro Nolasco. They grow in clusters and sometimes have a bright yellow snail that lays her eggs on the coral. They are usually closed during the day, unless you find them in a dark area. At night, they extend their tentacles to feed.

And, the last ones in this group that can be very beautiful are not too well liked by snorkelers or divers – the hydroids and jellies. It is always good to wear some type of body protection (wetsuits, Lycra skins, rashguards), even when the water is warm, to avoid an unpleasant sting.

Water temperatures are cooling some, but still in the mid-80’s. Still lots of great diving ahead.

Birding Report

In honor of Mexican Independence Day which was Saturday, September 16, the Bird of the Week is the Crested Caracara. Many Mexicans honor the Caracara as their national symbol although the bird on the Mexican flag is the Golden Eagle and Wikipedia in its official list of national birds has the Golden Eagle as Mexico’s bird.

Why the discrepancy? Let’s start with the Mexican flag. The flag is a vertical tricolor of green, white, and red. The coat of arms features a golden eagle eating a snake on top of a cactus. The website writes “in the early 1300s, so the story goes, the wandering tribe of Mexica people were looking for a home. Persecuted and cast out from other nations, they believed that their god, Huitzilopochtli, would show them a sign – to guide them to their new settlement. The Mexica people (who would become part of the mighty Aztec Empire) believed that they would see an eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus, and that’s where they would build their new city.” That turned out to be what is now Mexico City.

However, it appears that the interpretations of the prehispanic images may have misidentified the bird and labeled it a Golden Eagle. The Mexican ornithologist Rafael Martín del Campo in 1960 identified the eagle in the mythology as the Northern Caracara. He based his theory on the fact that there are few Golden Eagles in Mexico, the Golden Eagle does not sit on Cacti and, in his opinion, the plumage shown in the prehispanic images more closely resembles the Caracara, a bird very common in Mexico.

So if you do a search for the Mexican National Bird you will find some saying it is the Caracara and others saying it is the Golden Eagle. If you search in Spanish, almost all listings say Golden Eagle (Águila Real) and the bird on the flag is the Golden Eagle so I am not going to proclaim it is the Caracara when a Mexican says it is the Golden Eagle, but to a birder the whole story is very interesting.

Now I will leave discussion of the symbol and talk about the bird. While the Crested Caracara makes it into the North American bird books because of some populations along the southern borders of Arizona and Texas, it is by far more predominantly found in Mexico. We have seen it out in the La Manga area and also at the Miramar estuary. If you travel just a bit further south, you will start to see lots of them and they are often sitting on top of utility poles or other human structures. describes this medium sized raptor as combining “the raptorial instincts of the eagle with the base carrion-feeding habits of the vulture.” As I mentioned, you may see them perching, like hawks, on poles or scavenging on the ground like or with Turkey or Black Vultures. While it likes carrion (dead flesh), it is a diet generalist. It also likes insects, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and eggs.

The sexes are monomorphic (look the same), with the female slightly larger which is common in raptors. They often reuse old nests (after remodeling) and are monogamous with pairs remaining together year round. In Arizona they nest in the crotch of Saguaro cactus so it is probable that they also use the Saguaro or Cardón in the San Carlos area. If you see a hawk-like bird flying above you, look for the white wingtips AND white on the head and tail (the Black Vulture also has white wingtips.)

Birding outings are on hold until late October (not all that far away.) If you have any questions, you may contact me at
