Heinrich der Vogler or Henry the Fowler (fl. c. 1275–1296) was a Middle High German poet from the County of Tyrol. He was once believed to be the author of two important works of the literary cycle about Dietrich von Bern, Dietrichs Flucht (also known as Das Buch von Bern) and Die Rabenschlacht, but is now generally only thought to have edited them. Around 1280 he completed an excursus against princely caprice in Dietrichs Flucht, in which he names himself.
