English term or phrase: tiplet
Does anyone know what a "tiplet" is, in relation to birds?
I have: Tiplets, flights,

tumblers (colombes)nuns (pigeons, apparently).

I've searched even in specialist dics, online and off, without any luck.

Thanks

Explanation:
I've done work like this before and its really terrible how local terms can be conflicting. Since mine was for a natural science exhibition, I requested the client to furnish the Latin names, and from there on all I needed was an ornithological handbook.

Thanks. I wrote to you previously I think. It turns out that the word was actually "tipler" not "tiplet"
