Milton Glueck, Host of Milberger's Gardening Show

January 24, 2005
Milton is a lover of Nature. He has labored for years to attract birds to his home so he could share his experiences with Calvin Finch on the KLUP Garden Show. It seems as if Milton didn't have bad luck---he would have no luck at all. His description of his first birding "success" indicates that his first success had a foul ending: "I got out of my car today and heard what sounded like rain hitting the ground. I looked up in the sky (which I later realized was not the smartest thing I had ever done!!) and noticed there wasn't a cloud to be seen. THEN as my vision blurred by an ocular excrement direct hit, I remembered the stupid waxwings. Yep, I was hit three more times before I got to the house. I swear it sounded like rain hitting the ground and that bird manure must be acidic because it burned like the Devil!!!! Here's a picture of just a couple of the little guys--cute but DEADLY.
