Bird Watching Around Central PA - CENTURY 21 Mertz & Associates

As you shop for a home in Central Pennsylvania, you're likely to become enthralled by the landscape: low mountain ridges, the many wooded areas with stunning fall foliage, as well as the broad, shallow waters of the Susquehanna River. Nestled in the scenery, you may find just the right home from Lewisburg homes for sale, or perhaps in the surrounding area. 

Regardless of where you end up, our real estate agents highly recommend visiting the local parks and wilder trails for a little birdwatching — recently noted in The New York Times as surging in popularity since the pandemic

  1. Bald Eagle State Park - 149 Main Park Road, Howard PA
    As the name implies, you can glimpse a majestic bald eagle here. But you can also see many other species, all the way down to the small, drab but distinctively marked worm-eating warbler (it gets its name from feasting on caterpillars). Also spot magnificent predators in forests; colorful and diverse water and shorebirds in the marshes and lakes; and in the meadows, the ruffed grouse and wild turkey. You're just 40 miles from this rich habitat when you settle in Millmont homes for sale.

Drafty windows spoil your comfort and your energy bill. Here are some solid fixes for stopping those drafts.

They could be historical, modern, or even high-quality, but if your windows are drafty, you've got a problem. When winter temps set in, those drafty windows can make the inside of your home feel downright frosty and increase your heating bill beyond your comfort zone. Fortunately, there are many simple ways to chase away the cold and have you warm and toasty without shelling out big money for a replacement. Consider these quick drafty window fixes from our real estate agents.

  • Cover the Windows with Clear Plastic Sheeting
    Window insulation kits that seal the window with plastic shrink film are available online or from your local hardware store. These kits include plastic sheeting and double-sided tape. The sheeting looks like plastic wrap and must be spread around the window from the inside and held in place with double-sided tape. Once in place, you heat the plastic with a hairdryer so it shrinks to look like another glass pane and achieves an air-tight seal.
