Hummingbird is a studio album by Rick Wakeman and Dave Cousins. The songs are a mixture of jointly-composed originals, reworkings of songs from Strawbs albums and Dave Cousins' solo album Two Weeks Last Summer, together with Wakeman instrumental compositions presented as codas to the Cousins songs.

The album cover is painted by Wakeman's girlfriend, Italian artist Alina Bencini.
