Meeting Marc

I first met Marc Rosenthal at the Baby Squirrel Workshop at Vinegar Hill.

Marc, aka the Columbia Squirrel Whisperer,  does some pretty amazing things with the squirrels on Columbia University's Morningside campus. He claims it's not him, but gives all the credit to the squirrels. Well okay, they do have to be super smart to be Columbia University squirrels. And they're definitely exceptional, as they jump up and sit on Marc's arm or shoulder, responding to his spoken commands. You can watch them on his Youtube channel here:

It was fun introducing Marc to the squirrels of Peter Cooper Village. We learned a lot on a walk and talk through PCV, as Marc is very knowledgeable  and had all sorts of tips about squirrels to share. Marc's comment: we sure have a lot of squirrels at PCV! And he got to meet a fair number of them, including quite a few of our favorites.

The refreshments were great, and a good time was had by all!
