Falling Birds

Falling Birds by Ross Bleckner

They dropped almost simultaneously out of the sky and lay there, tiny little dead bodies.

Upon even further inspection the little holes seem to match up particularly well with shotgun pellets.

Upon looking down I realised there was only one explanation.

My shotgun chamber was empty.
