Susan, a nearby neighbor, asked if I thought the young bird might have been accidentally pushed from the nest. In previous years, when other offspring left the nest early, it was often due to part of the nest falling. In this case, the nest appears to still be intact. So, Susan's scenario deserves serious consideration.
Could the young eagle, who is still in the nest tree, have accidentally knocked its sibling to the ground?
1) Learn and leave established native flora undisturbed.2) Remove invasive species and then wait to see if native plants begin to grow without assistance. (When native plants start on their own, then these plants or trees are likely the most appropriate flora for the habitat.)3) Scatter seeds from nearby native plants in a similar habitat.4) If you feel you must add a new plant then select a native plant while considering how the plant fits with the specific habitat and understanding the plant's logical place in the normal succession of native plants.
My friend Elaine Chuang shared several resources (that were new to me) from the January 2022 Washington Ornithological Society meeting. The major new concept is that specific keystone native plants enable critical moths and caterpillars that in turn provide food for the great majority of birds, especially during the breeding season. Here are the top two links from her list.
