Since April 2010, the New York Times has been running a blog called “Scientist at Work – Notes from the Field”. According to the NY Times website, “This blog is the modern version of a field journal, a place for reports on the daily progress of scientific expeditions — adventures, misadventures, discoveries. As with the expeditions themselves, you never know what you will find.”

Dr. Gee and her collaborator, Dr. Jennifer Calkin, are blogging about their investigations of the interface between two quail species, Gambel’s Quail (Callipepla gambelii) and Elegant Quail (Callipepla douglasii), in Sonora, Mexico. You can click here to see all of Dr. Gee’s posts on her Mexican adventures.

Drs. Gee and Calkin were featured in a December 26 Rock Center with Brian Williams piece on the crowdsourcing website Kickstarter, which they used to fund their initial Mexican Expedition. You can see a video here. The segment on Drs. Gee and Calkin starts at 6:19. You can also check out our previous post on their use of Kickstarter.
