We’re for the birds at Blue Hills UU – always eager to learn about them!   Rick Persile of northern Wisconsin will seek to guide us in the “how to’s” of attracting birds to our little corners of the world at our Sunday service, April 25th

Born in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Mr. Persile took an interest in birds at a young age;  as that grew stronger, he learned how to create habitats that would attract them.  In tandem with his interest in photography, he’s become the “go to” guy for information and questions regarding anything relating to birds.  Rick’s current “yard list” documents over 140 different species he’s spotted, including both resident and migrant species. 


As an advocate and firm believer in keeping our waters as pristine as possible, Persile also serves as Chairperson for the “County Line Lake Association” in Sawyer County.  “Keeping a natural buffer along the shoreline protects not only the water, but provides nesting habitat for several different species of birds.”
