He has a nice deck that is positioned perfectly with the sun behind me in the morning hours. I put up two Bluebird houses and for the last few years they have had several broods. Tree Swallows hatched in one of them this year but after they fledged, the Bluebirds took over that house, also. I really don't bother them and have only taken a few photos. Also, this year, there are a lot of Great-crested Flycatchers around his place.
