Sipquicks, or flits, are small, pretty nectar-feeding birds. The Eld Vintic term for a sipquick is "calanthis", which is also the surname of the royal family in Vintas. They are known for flitting from place to place.[1]

In the Chronicle[]

When Kvothe discovered that Caudicus was poisoning Maer Alveron with lead and denner resin, he suggested to test the poisoned medicine on a cage of sipquicks.


Sipquicks are implied to be, or are at least related to, hummingbirds.
