Rescate Membership Drive Continues

Rescate’s original goal for our six week membership drive was to double our membership from 300 to 600 members. With only ten days left in the drive, it looks like we set our sights a bit too high, but we’re delighted to welcome the 31 new members who have purchased memberships so far during the drive!

The cost to keep Rescate’s doors open is approximately 10,000 pesos, or $500 USD, per day. Our new members, at $250 USD per membership, will help to keep Rescate’s doors open for 15.5 days, for which we are extremely grateful.

Let’s set a revised goal of 60 new memberships by the end of February, so that we can keep our doors open for a full month. We already have 31 new members, so we only need to find 29 more.

Come on San Carlos, we know you can do it!

Memberships can be purchased at the Rescate first aid building, RE/MAX First Choice Realty, the Saturday Marketplace and through PayPal on the Rescate website at

Mexicans first celebrated the country’s current flag on February 24, 1937. The design of this flag was used in 1821 and the current flag was officially adopted in 1968. Its colors – green, white, and red – are the national liberation army’s colors. The emblem in the middle of the flag stems from a legendary story of Aztecs who built their empire on a spot where they found an eagle eating a snake on top of a cactus. It is believed that the incident of the eagle and snake was a sign given by one of their gods and the place where it happened is today’s capital, Mexico City.

Huichol Bead Work, February 26 – 28

Returning to San Carlos are Rosendo Carrillo de la Rosa and his wife Celia from Santa Catarina, Jalisco. They are members of the Huichol indigenous people.

The Huichol have a long history of beading, making jewelry and decorating bowls and other figures, including stunning animals and decorative masks. The brightly colored commercial beads are fastened with wax and resin, in very intricate and beautiful patterns. Many of the designs have religious and cultural significance, often induced by visions which occur during peyote rituals.

It is worth a visit just to view the pieces, and many of us will not have the opportunity to see this traditional beaded art at any other place or time. The prices are very reasonable. Come and enjoy.

The Solimar office is located on the same road as the Golf Course. Drive past Club Deportivo and look for the sign on the right saying Art Show. Park and follow the pathway.

Fishing, Golfing, Birding & Photography Reports

Fishing Report

There were some fish caught last week. On Wednesday morning we had a quick hour at the Seamounts catching five big yellowtail. The next morning we only caught one later on. I told a few friends just to try in close, rather than the Island. My friend’s boat was down, so we didn’t fish the tournament, but we caught enough to win it.

After several glass-calm days, the wind came up for the 13th Annual Yellowtail Fishing Tournament. Many braved the high seas and went over to the Island. Most boats caught 2 to 4 yellowtail, although Team Catch-a-lotta weighed 9 yellowtail weighing 150 pounds, and the big fish of the day at 21.5 pounds. Their luck wore off for Sunday, losing the one fish that they needed to win. Team Fins Up weighed six good fish, and the big fish of 22 pounds for a second consecutive win. A few teams caught a number of smaller fish up the coast, and jigging off Lalo’s.

The bite in close has progressed a little later in the day with the full moon. We caught 7 bonita, a few small yellowtail, and one about 12 pounds Saturday morning off San Antonio. Then around 10:30am we found the school off an eastern Seamount, and continued to get 9 of 11 15-20 pound yellowtail. We were holding on towards the end, but they walked away with more fish than they probably know what to do with. The water was dirty, but they found our colorful lures trolled slow and deep. The next group brought bananas and had lost patience before the bite time. On Monday we caught a couple midday, before they went deep. The fish are around! There is still lots of bait everywhere, even after 19 boats seined the area Friday. There were reports of acres of fish boiling at the Island, but they were focused on the real thing. Sometimes you need to find the hungry ones!

Birding Report

We had a great outing this past Thursday. 30 of us trekked out to the mouth of Estero del Soldado, most packing their chairs. We plopped them down and took our time looking at the varied birds. Least and Western Sandpipers, Wilson’s Plovers, Royal and Caspian Terns, Common Goldeneyes as well as various herons and egrets. On the way back to the parking lot, we were hoping to see the Mangrove Warbler but it was not to be. However, 3 Great Kiskadees flew in and posed for all: one of the day’s highlights. Their large bright yellow breasts and black and white faces are stunning. Most of the group then proceeded to the northwest corner of the estuary where we were greeted by 10 Roseate Spoonbills and a Black Skimmer skimming. On our way to lunch at El Mazateño, the 18 of us that were left stopped along the road to view the birds in the Miramar estuary. Besides Northern Pintails, American Wigeons, Coots and a Greater Yellowlegs, we had two Peregrine Falcons perched in the sand. The ducks seemed oblivious but when we returned both were gone and I suspect that as soon as the falcons took to the air, the ducks took to hiding spots.

My Bird of the Week is the stunningly elegant Northern Pintail. We are seeing large numbers of these in the Miramar Estuary (also known as Tular) as well as some in Estero del Soldado. It is also common on freshwater ponds and we sometimes see them in small flocks on settlement ponds. However, it is usually hard to get good photos because they are among the most skittish of the ducks we see. I captured this one at the Miramar estuary and it was, fortunately for me, somewhat oblivious of my friend and me. Northern Pintails summer in the northwest United States, Canada and up into the Yukon Territories on the arctic tundra. Its winter range is large and includes basically the bottom half of the US, all of Mexico and parts of Central America.

Pintails form “pair bonds” each winter but, according to, are highly promiscuous during the nesting season. Once the eggs are laid, the female incubates the eggs alone. The ducklings hatch and spend only one day in the nest and then follow mom to the water. The continental population of the Northern Pintails plummeted from 6 million in the 1970’s to less than 3 million in the early 1990’s due to water shortages, agricultural development, contamination, and urbanization. However, the population has since stabilized at about 3.3 million and reports “Ongoing conservation measures such as habitat restoration and enhancement of agricultural lands, as well as prudent harvest management, suggest that Northern Pintails should have a secure future in North America.”

We will meet for our next outing on Thursday, February 21 at 8:00am at the Esterito Cafe at the bottom of the road leading west around Bahia San Carlos. 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

Jack Wilde Kayak Adventures

Jack is leading kayaking tours in Belize until mid April.

Family and friends coming to visit? Do you want them to experience the beauty and wonder of San Carlos, to really understand why you love it here so much? Why don’t we take them kayaking?

Out on the water we can truly enjoy the gorgeous scenery, the interesting wildlife, and the feel of the Sea of Cortez beneath us. Combine it with a swim or snorkel and a little beach time; what better way to show off this incredible location?

A three-hour tour, including kayak, costs only $40 USD per person.

Trips are in stable and dry double kayaks and include basic instruction, all required equipment, a light snack and a biologist as your guide. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

You can also take Kayak Paddling lessons.
