Tigerwings ifit was a fish we can tell quickly but a bird (lol) never knew it was in a Woodpeckers family , we would have chased it a lot faster but I think they do not like fiberglass boats (lol) . A bird will never know the diference.

Betwen land andwater The bird must have wanteda rest on a solidsurface if a boat or Bouy.



thank you very Much for helping find my answer I appriciate it it very Much a great weekend to all.

I'm pretty sure he was a little lost! I do believe they usually like to stay around trees. Hope he found his way home!
