Additional ways to make a more stimulating environment for our cat?

We've got a decent selection of toys, but I'd like to enrich kitty's days a little more.

We have little toys (various balls, little mice, a crinkly toy, etc.) for him to bat around. I switch them out, and sometimes add catnip. We have a variety of things-on-strings for interactive play. I open windows for him to look out, and am thinking of putting a bird feeder outside one of them. He loves his cardboard scratcher. He'll burrow under blankets and cuddle any available human. I dug up a couple of YouTube cat videos for him to watch, and would welcome any specific video recommendations.
Aside from human contact, these things seem to get old to him after a while, and we aren't always available. What are some things I can add to make his environment a little more stimulating?
(Things we can't do: get another cat; have him hunt for food/treats.)
