mollusque commented on the word columbaire
Pigeon shooting today consists of two basic competitions, columbaire, in which the birds are thrown by hand, and box-pigeon or flyer competition, where birds are released from devices called boxes,
which in effect are miniature traphouses containing one bird each.
