There was a big thick fence mesh between me and the bird, because this was at the zoo. You need a real, large-aperture to be able to blur the foreground out and effectively see around all that mesh.

Easy. Too easy actually. All I need is to write a piece of logic to "blur fence"

No. You also need a piece of logic to recreate the missing detail of the bird where it was covered by the fence.

without stereoscopic vision, how can even a camera take picture of something that is being blocked?

Aperture.  The aperture "looks around" the block.  Here's a visual example where the aperture naturally grows as the lens zooms in.
