Tiger Sharks Eating Land Birds?

The American Bird Conservancy issued a press release on the diets of Tiger Sharks in the Gulf of Mexico. It was discovered that their diet included feeding on land-based birds, such as woodpeckers, tanagers, meadowlarks, catbirds, kingbirds, and swallows. Two possible explanations: exhausted migrating birds collapsing over water and birds being drawn towards lighted oil and gas platforms at nights.
