It swam in during high water and got stranded.

Flooding in the area with high tides brought it up onto shore maybe?

Amazonian river levels fluctuate as much as 15 meters during the course of the year.

As the article said, this time of year, Humpbacks are usually chilling closer to the antarctic ocean 9,000 kms to the south.

High water in the Amazon also coincides with Spring snow melt.

That would mean water out, not tide in.

Hmmm.... Maybe. I still think it was a failed invasion attempt by the rapidly evolving Humpback whale army hellbent on exacting revenge for 400 years of whaling.

Water melts in the Andes, and floods the Amazon basin annually. Lots of sea creatures go inland looking for food, like Dolphins.

It's really odd to see video of Dolphins swimming in the bushes and trees.

There is a species of Dolphin that is native to the amazon river.
