The public is invited to meet outside the Main Library by Udall’s Pond and learn about local birdlife in a guided tour with resident birder Matt Klein.

Udall’s Pond is home to more than 37 bird species and several varieties of each, offering a fantastic viewing opportunity for new and seasoned bird watchers.

Klein is a lifelong resident of Great Neck, currently residing in Great Neck Estates where he leads the environmental commissioner for the village.

He has been birding for over 20 years, having discovered his passion for ornithology in his childhood friend’s backyard near Baker Hill Elementary School.

Shortly thereafter, he borrowed his first birding book, “National Geographic Guide to Birding Hotspots of the United States,” from the Great Neck Library and became hooked. He often traveled long distances to “add” birds to his New York State list.

Matt said he enjoys all things nature and can be found exploring the many beautiful parks in Great Neck, usually with a camera in hand. You can follow Matt on Instagram @flying_objects_at_rest.

The guided tour will be at Udall’s Pond at the Main Library, 159 Bayview Avenue, Great Neck, NY 11023, on Friday, May 31 at 4:30 p.m.

Please bring a pair of binoculars with you, or borrow a pair from our Library of Things! Registration is encouraged but not required. For more information, please contact Great Neck Library at (516) 466-8055 or email [email protected].
