    I would start with the patch tool to remove large sections of the stick and then close to the edges of the bird I would zoom way in and use a very small clone stamp.
    Make sure with the patch tool it is set at the top to "content aware fill".

    This is my attempt at removing the vertical stick (and touching up the background) from Brant's excellent Northern Cardinal image using photoshop .....

    Found a very cooperative raven today. I love these birds --- they're so handsome and intelligent. Plus they have an incredibly wide range of vocalizations.

    Beautifully done. I will have to give it a try.

    So, I am getting better with removing larger sticks...but none of my attempts are ready for display...

    From yesterday. I am no birder, but I am pretty sure this is a pine warbler:

    Beautiful image. The Warblers are a challenge to ID and I see very few in my area. This certainly could be a Pine Warbler although it's head seems more yellow compared to the image in my Peterson's Field Guide. It would be nice to see a full side view

    So, the yellow may be my fault. I was noticing green tints before I tried to ID the bird and adjusted the tint slider. It is still a very yellow bird, but apparently "Olive" is part of their coloring too.

    Two pictures that are unprocessed other than cropping:

    5DIV images are actually very nice right out of camera. Still very yellow, but I am still thinking Pine Warbler. The last image shows some "Olive" near the wings.

    I agree.

    White-crowned sparrows are not in northern Illinois for long.
