Other News Around Town

San Carlos … Pueblo Mágico?

According to Juan Cordero, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for Guaymas, San Carlos has a very good chance of being designated a Pueblo Mágico.

Through a series of very lucky circumstances, he has been able to show the Federal Government (SECTUR) what San Carlos has to offer and they told him that we have a real shot at getting the designation of Pueblo Magico.

The main benefit of getting this designation is, among other things, that we’ll get special treatment in the federal budget in many of their programs, including: parks and recreation, underground electrical wiring, and special tourism promotion packages.

Time-wise, they’re talking about having the designation by the end of this year.

The local government is in the process of submitting the application to the Federal Government. An important part is to gather at least 100 signatures from San Carlos residents. This petition is at the Residents and Visitors Attention Office (in Plaza Arrecifes … the same plaza as Seaside Realty and RE/MAX, behind the Pemex gas station). Please stop by and sign the petition. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9:00am – 3:00pm.

Fishing, Diving & Birding Reports

Fishing Report

The days of easy fishing may be done. We had some anglers struggling with the heat and waves this last week. Quite a few earned their stripes and introduction to the San Carlos Mariachi Club. Still, you might want a little breeze these days.

Eleven anglers came together for our Wounded Warrior’s event. Deal Maker squeezed by us with a final sailfish release. They had a sail on day one, a large 25+ pound dorado, and a 175 pound marlin. Most everyone got to reel a fish in, and a few more meals were held down the second day. As always, they all loved San Carlos.

The fish are moving around. It did seem like the bite mostly shut down for a few days. There were a few concentrations of sailfish found around the reef, farther offshore around large bait readings, and 40+ miles to the west. Some skipjack have added a little excitement at times. A few small tuna were caught outside the reef one day. Reports of dorado were very rare. There are a few corvina along the shorelines. We did start to see more dolphin and a few whales came through. It’s warming up, but it’s definitely cooler out on the water!

Diving Report

One of the most charismatic creatures the world over is the SEAHORSE. They don’t look like other fish, yet they have gills and fins and are indeed a fish. Because of their unique, even strange looking body shape, people used to think that they were mythological beings. Seahorses can be found throughout history from pulling Poseidon’s chariot to Captain Cook’s figurehead on his 2nd ship, The Resolution.

Hippocampus ingens, the Pacific seahorse, is found only on the west coast – approximately Oregon to Peru – and throughout the Sea of Cortez. It can grow to over a foot in length, being one of the largest seahorse species.

The seahorses seen locally on San Carlos dives and island dives at San Pedro Nolasco (commonly referred to as San Pedro Island) often come in a variety of colors from reds and yellows to browns and blacks. They are masters of disguise and to find one is magical.

This 5 inch specimen was seen at the dive site Lighthouse at San Pedro Nolasco two weeks ago while diving with El Mar Diving Center. Visibility was very good with water temperatures around 80° F – 3 mm wetsuit for most people.

For the lucky diver, seahorses can be seen at almost any of the popular dive sites whether by shore or by dive boat: Piedras Pintas (aka Lalo’s), San Antonio Point, San Nicholas, Window Rock, even right inside the entrance to the marina.

Unfortunately, these beautiful creatures are highly valued in the Asian market for traditional medicine – dried and ground. H. ingens is specifically targeted for this because of their size. They are also found dried in curios shops as souvenirs – please don’t buy them. And, they are often brought up as by-catch in trawling nets.

Time to go for a dive and spot a seahorse for yourself!

Birding Report

Hola Birding Enthusiasts

This week’s Bird of the Week is a 2nd Year male Phainopepla. Jack Sieforth captured this image at the Bella Esperanza watering hole on June 11. The adult male is all black. This young guy is molting. You can see the gray/brown feathers that contrast with the dark feathers of the body as well as the center of the wing. According to the experts at Facebook What’s This Bird, this contrast is referred to as a molt limit and is a sign that this bird hatched last year. The brownish gray wing feathers are retained juvenile feathers but the rest of the bird’s plumage is adult.

The name Phainopepla comes from the Greek word that means “shining robe” and the male is, indeed, a glossy black. The female is gray. My birding app guides show the Phainopepla in our area all year. However, Birdsna.org reports that they often leave the Sonoran Desert when the Desert Mistletoe berries become scarce and the heat intense. They head north into the oak and sycamore canyons of Arizona and California. There they breed in July. However, it is known that they breed between February and April in the Sonoran Desert. What they do not know is whether they breed twice or some choose to breed in Mexico and others in the US. The fact that Jack is seeing them here mid-June makes me think that perhaps at least some of them do, indeed, stay here all year.

Many people will refer to the Phainopepla as a Black Cardinal and one can see why with that large crest like a Cardinal’s or the Pyrrhuloxia. However, it is part of the Silky Flycatcher family and like other flycatchers, eats insects. But it also eats berries and devours the Desert Mistletoe berries while they are available. If you see a black or gray bird with a crest, and you will usually see a small flock rather than an individual, it is most definitely the Phainopepla.

Until next week, Happy Birding! Feel free to contact me at maryltannehill@yahoo.com.
