A Rain of Birds by PS Wright

A Rain of Birds (ISBN: 9781310561764)

When a couple of youngsters wander along the river, they have an odd encounter and experience some most unusual weather. 

The wily old catfish known as grey beard doesn't stand a chance. Augustus plans to take that one home to his gran for dinner.

May and Augustus meet by the riverbank. That's when all sorts of odd stuff starts to happen with the weather that might be all due to the Army Corps of Engineers, or maybe something worse. Some places they say it rains cats and dogs, but here in the hill country, they tell of a rain of birds and fish. In any case, May is prepared for whatever might happen. She brought her umbrella.
