Literally it is birdsong/bird singing. We need a context to let make sense.

Hi Lou. Thank you very much for that. It's from a song I heard LANGE SCHATTEN.

The word "Vogelsang" is in this verse:

"Sie entsteigt der Morgenkühle,
Trägt das helle Licht empor,
Hüllt das Land in Nebelschwüle,
Vogelsang dringt an mein Ohr."

I have everything else translated except for that word "Vogelsang".

Cheers

In Switzerland it's a very common place name, and also can be a family
name.If you look at the Swiss topographical map at
https://map.geo.admin.ch/?lang=en and enter "Vogelsang" as a search term
you will get more than 30 locations with this name.

Note that birdsong is "Vogelgesang", not "Vogelsang".

In this context it means the singing of the birds enter my ears.

My best guess is "birdsong." Vogel = bird, IIRC.
