Christmas Bonuses are Due by December 20

Under Mexican law, all employees (including maids, gardeners, cooks) deserve a Christmas bonus (it is called an Aguinaldo). It also creates and keeps a good, healthy relationship with your employees.

Christmas Bonuses are due by Friday, December 20, 2019, according to the Ley Federal del Trabajo, Articulo 87. The law states that the minimum bonus must be the equivalent of 15 days of base salary.

For part time employees, the equation is: (number of days worked in the year / 365) x 15 x salary.

So, for example, a gardener who works 1 day per week and earns 200 pesos, would be entitled to (52 / 365) x 15 x 200 = 428 pesos. To simplify, if you have a worker who works 1 time per week and has worked for you all year, use a multiplier of 2.14 times the salary (using the previous example, 2.14 x 200 = 428 pesos).

Here are a few Spanish phrases for your note or Christmas card:

*  Los mejores deseos para ti y tu familia en esta temporada. / Best wishes for the holiday season to you and your family.

* Feliz Navidad  y próspero Año Nuevo. Gracias por tu ayuda durante todo el año. / Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for all your help this year.

* Mis deseos sinceros para que éstas Pascuas estén llenas de alegría. / My sincerest wishes that these holidays be filled with joy.

The fleet will then be turning out to sea at Charley’s Rock for the return parade back to the Bahia.

Other News Around Town

Las Posadas, December 16 – 24

In Mexico, the Christmas holidays begin unofficially with the saint’s day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The festivities are in full swing with the beginning of the posadas — celebrated each evening from December 16 to 24. They are, in fact, a novenario — nine days of religious observance based on the nine months that Mary carried Jesus in her womb.

The posadas re-enact Mary and Joseph’s cold and difficult journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter; in Spanish, “posada” means “inn”.

Traditionally, a party is held each night in a neighborhood home. At dusk, guests gather outside the house with children dressed as shepherds, angels and sometimes, Mary and Joseph. An angel leads the procession, followed by Mary and Joseph or by guests carrying their images. The adults follow, carrying lighted candles.

The “pilgrims” sing a song asking for shelter, and the hosts sing a reply, finally opening the doors to the guests and offering hot ponche, fried rosette cookies known as buñuelos, steaming hot tamales and other festive foods. The party ends with a piñata in the shape of the Christmas star. The last posada, held on December 24, is followed by midnight mass.

Toy Drive at Shots Restaurant

Shots Restaurant is collecting toys for children between the ages of 5 and 14 years old. Presents will be put under the Christmas tree at Shots and delivered to the kids at Casa Hogar, Amor, Agua y Mas.

All presents should include a note advising if it’s for a girl or boy and age group.

Please help make a magical Christmas for the children.

CRRIFS: Dead Yellow-Bellied Sea Snake Washes Ashore

One of the world’s most venomous snakes washed ashore on Playa San Francisco last week in the aftermath of recent rainstorms and turbulent surf.

“It’s a Hydrophis platurus, an awesome animal,” confirmed Dr. Ricardo Rodriguez, a wildlife veterinarian and CRRIFS volunteer who replied immediately to my request for identification. A 2019 Durrell Conservation Academy scholar, Ricardo spearheads “Save the Snakes” initiatives throughout Mexico.

Perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised to see one because the Yaqui name for nearby Miramar is Bacochibampo (“Bay of the Sea Snakes”). But having been well primed as a diver to give wide berth to any creature with bright coloring in the water, I was still startled to see the normally elusive reptile, a distant relation of cobras and taipans, stretched out on our local beach.

With its distinctive dandelion yellow underbelly and blackish brown back ending in a flattened paddle tail covered in Dalmatian spots, the Hydrophis platurus is also the world’s most widely distributed snake. Found in tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific and along the Mexican Pacific coast into the upper reaches of the Gulf of California, the reptile needs warm water to maintain its vital functions, and it must come to the surface to breathe. But it will often dive for 3 – 4 hours at a time to depths of up to 50 meters; the diving is thought to help with both oxygen exchange through the skin and temperature regulation.

Sea snakes are occasionally spotted offshore 1 – 20 km, drifting passively with currents and opportunistically feeding on fish at the surface. However, at times, they congregate in large groups of thousands for reasons unknown.

Following a 6-month gestation period, females produce up to 10 live young, which they protect during their first days of life. Their lifespan in the wild is unknown, but they can live on average 3 – 4 years in captivity.

Like most snakes, the yellow-bellies are quite shy and avoid contact with humans. Additionally, they have very small mouths and fangs (~1.5 mm), so they pose little risk to humans; if they were to bite, the venom yield would be quite low. Nonetheless even a weak snake or one appearing to be dead can strike if one is trying to move it, so do not attempt to handle the snakes.

To report wildlife at risk, contact CRRIFS at 662-161-0843 or 622-152-9934. Read more about CRRIFS and how you can support its conservation efforts. By Tamara Banar

Fishing, Birding & Photography Reports

Fishing Report

It’s probably time to put the outriggers away. I heard of a few small Dorado caught and some marlin seen on the Reef last Wednesday. Sunday morning showed 76 at dawn only 22 miles out and it was glass calm all day, but I didn’t hear of anyone trying. This weekend looks nice, but another front is on its way. I guess my ballyhoo will be on ice until the Spring.

The bite was pretty good for the quarter moon. The bonita bite went from mediocre to good for decent sized fish. A few yellowtail were in the mix with an equal number of small and medium-sized fish. The bait left the shorelines for deeper water in the bays and close to the rocky points. There were some big balls of sardines, but no surface activity. We did find some good schools of Sierra to 8 pounds, which were delicious hot out of the smoker.

The full moon is upon us, which should mean some early and midday bites. Mornings look good, with windy afternoons. As the water cools I would expect some great fishing. I heard of one good report from up the coast. The Island sounded a little slow with some small fish. Every day is different, but we are getting plenty to eat.

Birding Report

Hola Birding Enthusiasts,

Some of our regulars have started to return. I refer to human birders because our regular winter birds are mostly here already. One of our newly arrived, David Jasper, is a professional birding guide in Portal, AZ. He has been joining our outings for a number of years and is a great help to me as well as helping our whole group to become better birders. One of the loveliest things about our group is how the more experienced birders help those who have much less or even no experience. There were six of us on Thursday: 3 regulars and 3 newly returned to San Carlos. We spent the morning at the east side of the Miramar Estuary. It has changed from last year and is full of much grown vegetation but also birds. Besides the ducks: Northern Pintails, American Wigeons, Cinnamon and Green-winged Teals; we had flocks of Royal, Elegant and Caspian Terns; all of our regular herons and egrets; Whimbrels and Long-billed Curlews; and the best were flocks of the brilliantly yellow Great Kisadees and the funky Groove-billed Anis. For a birder, it was glorious.

The Bird of the Week is our Cactus Wren. I was able to capture this photo out at the Miramar (known locally as Tular) Estuary but you will see and hear the Cactus Wren all around us. They are fairly “habituated” meaning they feel quite comfortable in the ̈”habitat of humans” unlike other wrens. They are also the largest of the wrens. Often you will hear their scratchy, car engine sound in the distance before you see them. I don’t know if they are proud of their beautiful looks but they are the easiest to spot of any of the wrens we have here in the desert. They pose and sing grandly from a cactus that seems constructed just to highlight their beauty.

They love to build nests and unlike many birds that build nests solely in the spring for the rearing of their young, the Cactus Wren builds nests all year and uses them for roosting. In fact, according to, juvenile Cactus Wrens will start learning construction methods as soon as 12 days after leaving the nest. Being a desert bird, the Cactus Wren has adapted to the sparse availability of water. They get sufficient hydration from eating juicy insects and small berries.

We will meet for our next outing this Thursday, December 12 at 7:30am at the Esterito Cafe at the bottom of the road leading west around Bahia San Carlos. Where we go depends on how fast places are drying out. My plan, however, is to visit the Esterito Road watering hole since it now actually has water.

Please do not feel you have to be an expert to join our group. If you do not know anything except that you want to know more, our group will help you learn. If you are an experienced birder and just want to know other birders, then join us and share your experience. Please bring your water, sun and insect protection, and a chair. And your binoculars, of course. Outings usually last until around 11:30am or so and we then head to lunch. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at by Mary Tannehill
