The hawks are not Central Park's only romantic couples

Ladies Pavillion--Hernshead

Jack Meyer [see next post for details of his bird walks] sent me the charming little True Romance below:

This morning I met and birded with an Englishman who was on his first trip
here. Why was he here?

Two years ago his daughter came here for the holidays, and met another Brit
in Times Square on New Year's Eve. They stayed in touch back in England, and eventually became engaged. They decided it would be nice to get married where they met, so they are being married this afternoon, at the Ladies Pavilion on Hernshead.

Papa arrived in the city last night, and what better to do while waiting for
the wedding than go birding?
