Here is a Manufacture française d'armes et cycles de Saint-Etienne catalog from 1914 that lists a table on the right side with various animals and their recommended shot size. For alouettes (larks) they recommend #10 shot for the first and second shot when using lark mirrors. And differentiate when hunting them "au cul levé" or "with raised ass" whatever that is! When hunting that way they recommend #9 shot for the second shot. ( https://grives.net/chasse_grive_cul_leve.html talks about this "raised ass" thrush hunting mode.)
