Hummingbird was the first of three albums[2] recorded by the British rock band Hummingbird.[3] The album was produced by Ian "Sammy" Samwell.[4]

With initial interest from Apple Records and CBS, the band started work on this album in mid July 1973. At this stage Jeff Beck took part in minor sessions with the band, but this did not develop into a final contribution. After signing to A&M they transferred to Island studios to finish off the album during September and October 1974.[5]
